The Refugee Camp Faladié in the Malian capital, Bamako, is a place of terror. Over 3000 people live here, fleeing from violence and horror, in a garbage dump cramped between the animals of a livestock market. New families from the center and north of Mali arrive daily. The situation is precarious. There is a dire lack of everything, as the government does not officially recognize the refugees. Therefore, the people are entirely dependent on themselves and the generosity of others.
For several months, the water tanks in the camp have not been refilled. Rice and other basic food supplies are scarce. Hygiene items are not available. In the whole camp, there are only three wells and six toilets. Volunteers have set up a makeshift school, but there are no school materials. Many children do their homework on instruction manuals or other waste paper. With the onset of the rainy season, a malaria wave threatens the camp, and the urgently needed medicine for it is in short supply.
To at least cover the most essential needs, we want to launch a donation campaign to help directly on-site.
What is especially needed:
– Soap, 500 pieces: 150 Euros
– School supplies, 200 notebooks, study books, and small writing boards each: 250 Euros
– Two tons of rice: 1000 Euros
– Malaria medication: 4500 Euros
Every donation helps, and we will give it directly and 100 percent to the people in the refugee camp.
Sissoko, Lennart, and I will personally take care of it on-site!
