With the military intervention in Mali, the situation on the ground has changed dramatically, according to a top official of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

Although security is still a concern, David Gressly says aid agencies can now resume distribution of humanitarian supplies to central Mali. The humanitarian agencies are also working to reach the food insecure population in the north such as Gao and Timbuktu.

In this interview with UN Radio's Mamadou Alpha Diallo, David Gressly stresses the importance of access to the north where about a half a million people are in need of food assistance.
