The European Union said it is satisfied that the delivery of the humanitarian aid to the Sahrawi refugees went smoothly, affirming that it didn’t record any irregularities in this process, contrary to the false allegations circulated by the Moroccan propaganda machine.
After the World Food Programme (WFP) which has swept away the false Information circulated by Morocco on a supposed “misuse” of humanitarian aid destined to Sahrawi refugees, the European Commission has just released two official reactions, putting an end to the misleading campaign conducted by the Moroccan authorities on this issue.
In a report sent to the European Parliament and Council, dating back to 7 August 2020, the European Commission said it is satisfied that the delivery operations of the humanitarian aid to the Sahrawi refugees went smoothly, underlining that it didn’t record any irregularities in this process.
After four decades of unresolved political conflict resulting in humanitarian consequences, tens of thousands of Sahrawi refugees are living in a forgotten and prolonged crisis, said the report, adding that they live in five camps in the desert of Algeria’s south-west, dependent on humanitarian aid for survival.
In the report, the Directorate General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO) at the European Commission affirmed that it deployed operations for €9 million, providing food and fighting against the increased malnutrition among the Sahrawi refugee children and women, as well as supply of drinking water.
