Providing humanitarian assistance to displaced populations in Yatenga
Burkina Faso is grappling with a complex and protracted regional crisis on its border with Mali. Nearly 1.2 million people are directly affected, of whom slightly more than half are food insecure. Millions of people in Mali and Niger are also suffering. The immediate cause of the crisis is violence from armed groups that are attacking the authorities and also civilians, kidnapping and killing innocent people.
In light of the alarming situation, Mission Inclusion is working with the Association Formation-Développement-Ruralité (AFDR) to quickly meet the emergency needs of insecure populations in Yatenga province. We are also working to promote the economic recovery of the most vulnerable affected families. Certified seeds and plots of land are being distributed so families can grow their own food to meet their needs. The goal is to involve the affected community in its own recovery.
Our work in Burkina Faso is made possible by financial support from Quebec’s Ministry of International Relations and La Francophonie (MRIF).
