Before the distribution commences. The senior staff of IBC and the distribution teams made a brief visit to some towns and villages we found out from our discussion with the displaced communities that most infrastructure including hospital, Schools structure not in good condition.
During the visit to Konna displaced communities in the Southern province of Mali we find out that all the communities are overcrowded and the facilities provided by UN Agencies and other humanitarian agencies are not enough. As a result there is serious outbreak of diseases within these communities there is therefore a need for an urgent humanitarian assistance in the form of food, medication, shelter water wells and educational facilities in other to alleviate the suffering of displaced in this camps.
