As fighting continues to take its toll, many families are seeking shelter in Abala camp in the neighbouring country.

Thousands of civilians fleeing the conflict in northern Mali have sought shelter in neighbouring Niger.

Each week, dozens of families cross the border to arrive in the Abala refugee camp where 11,000 people are already being sheltered.
