Niger: Malian Refugees Seek Shelter
About 50,000 Malian refugees have sought shelter in Niger due to on-going conflicts in their home country. Children in particular are at risk of malnutrition. UNICEF is working to provide food supplies through a feeding centre which cares for more than 1,200 children. The food supplies and medical aid that reach the refugee camps are helping to alleviate the crisis, but more help is urgently needed.
