Mali refugees in Niger
More than 500 Malians are crossing into Niger each day. More than 25,000 people are villages Chinagoden, Mangaizé, Abala and Ayorou near the border. They have fled conflict. They are arriving in Niger in areas which are experiencing severe food shortages. The local communities are helping, but resources are dwindling.
