The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has warned that more than one million people will suffer from food insecurity by next August in Mali.

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs explained in its bi-monthly bulletin that food insecurity has reached alarming levels, especially in the northern and central regions.

The office reported that about 7.1 million people, out of a total population of 23 million, will need humanitarian assistance in 2024, and stressed that more than half of those in need are children.

The bulletin explained that the funding rate for the humanitarian response plan provided by donors such as governments, multilateral organizations, non-governmental organizations and others is at its lowest levels, which increases the challenges in facing the worsening humanitarian crisis in the country.
