Spain: Spanish associations active in collecting humanitarian aid for the Saharawi refugee camps

Madrid, February 09, 2017 (SPS) - Spanish associations with the Saharawi people are currently working to collect humanitarian aid that will be sent to the Sahrawi refugee camps.

In the province of Andalusia, associations of solidarity with the Saharawi people met recently at the "Machado Antonio de Baeza" University to develop a "plan to encourage and support" the settlement of the conflict in Western Sahara.

Participants also highlighted the importance of aid programs, notably the "Vacation in peace" program to welcome dozens of Saharawi children during the summer and the caravan of peace which allows each year this Spanish province, to send hundreds of foodstuffs to the camps of the Sahrawi refugees, "in the absence of concrete initiatives of the international community to resolve this conflict", they deplored.
