Mali - IOM, in close collaboration with the Malian government’s Emergency Operations Center and the UN World Health Organization (WHO), has set up a Flow Monitoring Point (FMP) in Kourémalé – the main point of entry between Mali and Guinea Conakry, to collect data on travelers and provide outreach to check the spread of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in Mali.
Since the 2012 crisis, with more than 600,000 individuals displaced, IOM started managing the internal displacement database in coordination with the Government of Mali. With this database management, IOM and the Government of Mali reached the most remote areas to collect information on internal displacement and returns. In order to better respond to the need, the PROTECTION cluster has divided the areas of intervention among all the cluster partners. IOM is responsible for areas of high return and high internal displacement.
The proposed activity will enable the immediate provision of safe drinking water including availability of water purification sachets and hygiene promotion services to populations affected by internal conflict and the food crisis. This activity will meet immediate water needs and will help preventing the outbreaks of diseases through strengthening the operation and maintenance of existing water points. Rehabilitation of existing water sources will be prioritized over developing new water sources.
The objective of this proposal is to address the most urgent humanitarian needs of internally displaced population in Northern Mali through the provision of life-saving assistance to those who are facing extreme vulnerability, in particular women affected by gender-based violence and unaccompanied children.
This project aims at contributing to the early recovery and the community stabilization of six (6) villages located in the northern regions of Mali (Gao, Timbutku and Mopti) through a comprehensive action plan including the following components: 1) Local government support for conflict prevention; 2) Identification of basic needs and rehabilitation/provision of shelter, health, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) facilities as well as provision of infrastructure for agriculture (wells, irrigation systems, land ploughing, provision of gardening tools such as spade, hoe, fork, etc); 3) Provi
This project aims at contributing to the early recovery and the community stabilization of six (6) villages located in the northern regions of Mali (Gao, Timbutku, and Mopti) through a comprehensive action plan including the following components: 1) Local government support for conflict prevention. 2) Promotion of reconciliation and peace building through social cohesion activities.
The overall objective of the project is to contribute towards addressing the immediate and early recovery needs of IDPs, returnees who decide to spontaneously and voluntary return to their regions of origin as well as to support the most vulnerable communities that will be taking in significant numbers of returnees.
The programme will assist two villages in the circle of Timbuktu and two villages in the circle of Mopti to strengthen social cohesion and reconciliation, rebuild socio-economic infrastructure and basic social services, and provide psychosocial care, through projects that will solely be proposed and implemented by targeted communities.
This book is dedicated to the numerous staff members who served at the frontlines of IOM's ebola response as well as those in the supportive roles who contributed towards its success.
