U.S. to send $4 million to flood-ravaged African nation

dollars-moneyWASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to catastrophic flooding in the Sahrawi refugee camps in Tindouf, Algeria, the United States announced a contribution of more than $4 million in humanitarian assistance to help meet the acute needs of Sahrawi refugees.

“This new contribution includes support for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the World Food Program, and the UN Children’s Fund,” a state department spokesperson said Monday. “These funds will be used to support the reconstruction of shelters, schools, and health clinics. They will also help replace food rations that were destroyed by the flooding.

“The devastation across the five camps is unprecedented, with some 7,000 families left homeless and 30,000 without access to health care. Through this contribution, the United States continues to demonstrate its commitment to the welfare of the Sahrawi refugees and calls on other nations to support the Sahrawis in their time of need.”
