Coup d’état in Burkina Faso – 24 January 2022

A coup d’état took place in the capital Ouagadougou on 24 January 2022 and the current president was arrested. Power was seized by a group of young officers who blamed the coup on President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré’s “inability” to deal with the country’s security problems.
The military have publicly committed to upholding human rights and working out a “calendar” for a return to democracy. According to the military, the coup d’état took place without bloodshed. The situation in Ouagadougou is currently calm, the military has called for normality.
Our entire team in Burkina as well as the girls supported by TuaRes and their families are doing well for the moment. It is currently completely unclear where this situation will lead.
First of all, however, we are grateful that there was no bloodshed and that the situation currently appears to be stable.
We are in close contact with our team and will of course keep you informed.
Thank you for your good thoughts!
Your TuaRes Foundation
