Mariama wished to flee to Niger with her children and mother-in-law, but could not afford to take everyone with her.

"My father gave me a goat that I sold to pay for transportation from Menaka to Niger, but it was not enough for all of us. So I left my three youngest children with my cousins," she said.

Her parents stayed behind in Mali and she fears for their safety. "We could not stay there. My family members are also having problems to feed their own families. We just did not want to be an extra burden."
