In a situation of extreme poverty, HI is working on all fronts to provide Malians with an appropriate response, both in the north and south of the country. The organisation supports victims of the recent conflict and continues to defend the right to health and dignity of people with disabilities.
Today, HI is active in the regions of Sikasso, Bamako, Mopti, Timbuktu and Gao, covering a wide range of services: functional rehabilitation, mental health and psychosocial support, HIV and disability, early detection and care of disabilities, education on the risks related to explosive devices and assistance to victims of armed conflict.
HI helps improve health centres and the care management of pregnant women to make services more accessible to all. The organisation also helps young children with multiple disabilities and severe malnutrition by providing them with global care management and assisting communities in implementing stimulation activities.
To provide every child with access to education, HI builds the capacities and helps train education staff in the inclusion of children with disabilities, implements awareness-raising actions in communities and supports building transformation projects. In addition, the organisation works in the field of economic inclusion to promote access to inclusive employment for young people and to provide support to microfinance projects.
By assisting community projects and prevention actions, HI also works to build the resilience of people at risk of food insecurity and to improve the security situation of communities in the regions of Segou, Koulikoro and Mopti.
