Armed conflict and political instability in this West African nation added to the suffering of 3.5 million Malians already facing severe food shortages. Over 520,000 people have fled northern Mali in search of safe haven, and another 330,000 have been internally displaced. Mali’s crisis has led to the collapse of public services, especially health care and education. The International Rescue Committee is there to provide lifesaving assistance.
