In a situation of extreme poverty, Humanity & Inclusion is working on all fronts to provide Malians with an appropriate response, both in the north and south of the country. Its teams support victims of the recent conflict and continue to defend the right to health and dignity of people with disabilities.
As early as 2012, Humanity & Inclusion mobilised additional teams to respond to the humanitarian emergency in northern Mali. Mine clearance experts notably intervened to clear explosive remnants of war posing a threat to the population, and sometimes even schools.
The organisation continues to support vulnerable people, strengthen health services in the Timbuktu region, and fight against food insecurity and malnutrition among young children. Humanity & Inclusion also supports the initiatives of women's groups committed to peace and reconciliation.
At the same time, our teams remain committed to fighting discrimination against people with disabilities through access to education, care and employment. Finally, Humanity & Inclusion trains medical staff in the early detection of disability. Improving the care-management of young children prevents or limits the onset of disability and allows them to reach their full potential.
Since 2016, the organisation has implemented a project to prevent the risks of developmental delays and disabling sequelae in young children who have suffered from malnutrition, through physiotherapy and psychoaffective stimulation (encouraging interaction between parents and children, stimulation through play, etc.)
