UNREST IN MALI ON AFRICA DAY

Children Enjoying Some Gifts
Children Enjoying Some Gifts

Friday 25 May is Africa Day!  We’d like to give you an update on Mali’s unrest.  After a brief relief from the Sunday's accord between the Junta and ECOWAS to maintain the civilian president for a one year transition, things headed up again in Bamako.

 The president was attacked and the presidential palace was vandalized on Monday.  The country is trying to stick to following the constitution and the international community is supporting such a determination.  In addition to the political and social unrest, the problem is that half of the country still remains in the hands of rebels/Islamist extremists.  Over 150,000 people have been displaced, schools disturbed, and children are being recruited by the Islamist extremists in the north of the country. 

 On a bright side, the continent is celebrating the Africa Day this Friday on 25 May 2012.  Despite the turmoil in the country, thanks to your support, ACFA-Mali’s children are doing OK, and continue their schools and sports.  We would like to encourage you to consider donating to the cause of Mali’s vulnerable children.  Thank you for all the support to ACFA.
