Malian children in the M'berra camp are losing their lives in order that Islamists groups in North Mali keep fighting the governments of neighbouring countries. They have been recruited by the armed groups active in North Mali. They are killed during fighting or suicide attacks.
On the eastern borders between Mauritania and Mali, specifically in the Mbera camp for Malian refugees, thousands of children live in difficult humanitarian conditions due to the ghost of illiteracy, which now haunts them as a result of the lack of a sufficient number of educational institutions on the one hand, and the conditions that force a big number of them to work at an early age to meet the family needs on the other.
At the extreme south east of Mauritania, the camp’s inhabitants are afraid to return to Mali. Their eyes are riveted on Algiers negotiations which hold the key for their return. But the M’berra populations demand more than a document to feel safe and consider leaving camp.
Libya is an example of countries affected by political conflicts. The conflicts adversely impact on its economy, specifically on its growth rate. They also affect administration which is today characterised by anarchy. And the armed conflict between warring parties does not let hope for improvement of the situation.
