4 March 2013: Since February 2012, more than 54,117 Malian refugees have crossed the border into Mauritania.

 4 March 2013: Since February 2012, more than 54,117 Malian refugees have crossed the border into Mauritania. The French-led military campaign in Mali in January 2013 significantly increased the number of Malian refugees seeking refuge in south-eastern Mauritania. Mauritania—one of the region’s poorest nations—was severely affected by the drought in 2012. Therefore, the Malian refugees add a new dimension to Mauritania’s humanitarian challenges.
In response, the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) has provided a rapid response grant of US$4,470,372 to seven UN agencies.
