In Mali, the ICRC visits detainees, puts people back in touch with loved ones with whom they’ve lost contact because of the conflict, treats people that have been wounded or injured by the fighting, distributes seed and tools to farmers, vaccinates livestock, rebuilds and reconnects water-supply systems, and raises awareness of international humanitarian law.
For many of these activities, we work closely with the Mali Red Cross.
