As Mali’s conflict deepens, hundreds of thousands of Malians are now refugees and in dire need of long-term humanitarian assistance. Furthermore, compounding the near-permanent lack of food, water and healthcare for the displaced, there are hundreds of cases of rape, torture and other crimes against humanity as part of the ongoing conflict.
