Austere conditions

Prior to the visit, we kept hearing that the Sahrawis were not used to complaining or asking for charity. This proved to be true, as we visited family after family in their tents, or in the mud houses many have ended up building because they see no end to their exile.

“We do not need anything more, by the grace of God,” we heard from the heads of many refugee families.

But when you see the austere conditions, however, you wonder how that could be. There is no electricity in the camps – barring a few hours per day – and no latrines, and very few goods or food available in the market. As a result, people live almost exclusively from humanitarian aid.
