Since its deployment in July 2020, the Chinese peacekeeping force has successfully accomplished a series of missions assigned by the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali, including armed patrols, constructions and medical support.

The eighth Chinese peacekeeping force to Mali consists of a guard detachment, an engineer detachment and a medical detachment.

The medal award ceremony was held at the camps of the three detachments separately due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.
