Forgotten refugee crisis: Sahrawi refugees in Algeria
EU humanitarian aid funds the general distribution of food that takes place every month: 125 000 rations are distributed to 90 000 refugees. Families receive rice, cereal, pulses, and cooking oil.
“About 77% of the refugees’ food needs currently depend on humanitarian assistance,” says El Mahdi Boumbali, the World Food Programme’s project officer.
“EU humanitarian aid is our number one partner in the camps. With a contribution of €4 million per year, it is our main donor,” he adds.
