(Ouagadougou/Dakar, 22 October 2012): A high-level humanitarian partnership mission to the
Sahel region of West Africa, led jointly by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the
United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA), has ended its
visit in Burkina Faso, after spending time in Mali and Niger.
