Thousands displaced in Burkina Faso following recent attacks

Every minute last year, 25 people on the planet were forced to flee according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees annual Global Trends report on displacement, equating to 2.3 million people in 2018 in a record high.

The report shows West Africa saw an increase in refugees and displaced people of more than 13 percent and all of Africa has more than 6 million refugees in total. A spike this year in attacks in the Sahel region has forced thousands to flee their homes in central Mali and northern Burkina Faso including Issaka Sawadogo, a 67-year-old Mossé from the largest Burkina Faso ethnic group.
