During a monitoring visit to Smara Refugee Camp the team met Khadijatou, one of the refugees who has been living in the camp for 36 years. She describes how her life was and how it has improved, thanks to humanitarian assistance.


Since 1986, World Food Programme (WFP) has been providing basic food assistance to the refugees from Western Sahara in Algeria, distributing 125,000 rations per month to the most vulnerable of them.
