Emergency contribution to UNHCR for flooding in Saharawi refugee camps in Tindouf Algeria

The Italian Cooperation has approved a 200,000-euro voluntary emergency contribution to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to respond to the consequences of the flooding that has affected the Saharawi refugee camps in the Tindouf area of Algeria. Based on the available estimates, approximately 25,000 people are currently in dire need.

Italy’s contribution is directed at supporting UNHCR operations and those of other organisations working with the Saharawi refugees in the area, including the Italian NGO Cisp. The Italian Cooperation contribution will make it possible, in particular, to provide emergency supplies to the refugees and to begin to confront the heavy material damage to the five reception camps of Tindouf.
