Some 7,000 people have just received emergency supplies of food and other basic necessities in the towns of Niono, Kala Siguida and Mariko, in the central part of the country. The aid was distributed by the ICRC and the Mali Red Cross. Each displaced family received rice, millet, beans, salt and cooking oil, plus blankets, mosquito nets, clothing, kitchen utensils and other basic necessities. The displaced are benefiting above all from residents' willingness to help them by sharing their meagre resources and, when they can, by taking them in. The ICRC and the Mali Red Cross are also providing food to these generous host families.
