"Life is hard - so take it easy" Mali Local Custom Tip by tini58de
Mali Local Customs: 65 reviews and 76 photos
Poor sanitation and limited health services are some of the causes of the high rate of disease in Mali. The most common sicknesses treated are malaria, measles, diarrhea, and colds. The greatest causes of infant and child mortality are diarrhea and measles, both complicated by malnutrition.
There are few employment opportunities in Mali, and educated youths must leave the village to search for work. This in addition with a poor educational system result in a bad motivation for education. I am very sorry, that Fatoumata does not go to school - she helps her mother with the chores.
The every day life in Mali is hard, but still I saw so many cheerful people, that it warmed my heart!
Life definitely is much slower there than in the hectic European countries, so be prepared to just take your time!
