In June 2013, farmers and livestock breeders in Oudalan Province, northern Burkina Faso, received food aid from the Burkinabé Red Cross Society, with support from the ICRC. Burkina Faso has been facing the consequences of the crisis in Mali since 2012, and has taken in almost 50,000 refugees. This influx is exacerbating the already difficult economic situation of people in the country.
