The situation in Mali
The country is affected by many crises that hinder its development and still requires assistance. Nearly 50% of the population is aged under 14. Children suffer from a lack of drinking water, health care and social services. Many must migrate to find work. They are at risk of exploitation, physical and moral violence and an ill-adapted legal system.
