The ICRC has worked in Mali since 1965 and been present there continuously since 1991. It is committed to helping people affected by armed conflict, especially in the areas that are hardest to reach.

Our work in Mali

In Mali, we protect and assist people who are suffering the effects of armed conflict and adverse climatic conditions.

Our activities include visiting people deprived of their freedom, restoring links between family members separated by armed conflict, caring for war-wounded and vulnerable patients, providing limb-fitting and physical rehabilitation services, vaccinating animals, distributing seeds and agricultural equipment, building and repairing water-supply systems, safeguarding and restoring livelihoods, and raising awareness of international humanitarian law among weapon bearers and other influential groups in Malian society.

The ICRC carries out its humanitarian activities from Bamako, Mopti, Timbuktu, Kidal, Gao, Ménaka, Niafunké and Tessalit.

Stories from the people we serve

We used to farm, fish and trade, but now the sand has changed everything. If the ICRC had not funded this dune-fixing project, our village would have been invaded by sand.
