European Commission assists Sahrawi refugees in south-west Algeria
The European Commission has adopted a further decision, worth €9.3 million, to assist Sahrawi refugees in south-west Algeria by improving living conditions and, specifically, food security. Financing will be provided via ECHO, the Commission’s humanitarian aid service, under the responsibility of Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid Louis Michel.
The Sahrawi refugees have been living in four camps surrounding Tindouf in south-west Algeria for several decades and depend on international aid for their survival, the European Union being the largest donor.
