It’s hard enough being a refugee anywhere in the world, having to uproot and leave your home, friends and family behind. But can you imagine being a refugee for nearly 40 years? That’s the situation facing Sahrawi refugees – one of the oldest refugee groups in the world – who began fleeing their homes in 1975, when conflict in Western Sahara sharply escalated. The refugees, living in five camps in Tindouf, south-western Algeria, refuse to return home until there’s a political resolution to the crisis – including a referendum on self-determination. In the meantime, refugees depend heavily on international aid provided by donors including the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO) having little access to other resources.
