Solidarity project for Sahrawi Refugees

ALMERIA’S Department of Culture Leader Maria Vazquez presented in AlmeriaCity the trailer that will collect non-perishable foods to be delivered to Sahrawi refugee camps in Algeria’s Tinduf region.

The trailer, which belongs to the Amigos del Sahara (‘Friends of the Sahara’) Association and is known as the Caravana por la Paz (‘Trailer for Peace’), aims to match last year’s collection of 15,000 kilograms of rice, sugar oil and other non-perishable foods, which will be transported to Alicante from where it will be picked up by Sahrawi people for the last leg of the journey.

Maria Ramirez, secretary and coordinator for the initiative said: “the situation in the camps is getting worse every time as the refugees have a total dependency from international aid” so she is asking the people of Almeria for help. Food can be donated until the end of February at the Amigos del Sahara Association headquarters on Calle La Venta 5 in Aguadulce although donations can be picked up by members of the association by calling  661 97 15 20 or 661 97 15 21. Also, those interested can take their donations directly to the trailer, which will be at the Carretera de Alicun at the level of El Parador, between 10am and 6pm as well as help with the loading.
