ACTED has been present in Mali since April 2012, where an emergency team was sent to prepare a response to a complex crisis. ACTED is currently beginning the implementation of a multi-sector relief intervention for displaced and host populations in Bamako, with a priority given to non food item distributions, cash for work activities and food voucher distributions. Cash for work activities will focus on sanitation and environment protection works. ACTED is also taking position on food distributions to displaced and host populations. ACTED also aims at intervening for displaced and local populations in Segou and Gao.
Since February 2012, ACTED has set up and is managing the Abala refugee camp in Niger, close to the Mali border. Most refugees are originally from the Menaka area. Working with these populations has helped to apprehend the area and its nomadic and sedentary populations. Such presence on the Nigerien border is a precious operational asset to help interventions in Gao and Menaka.
