The European Commission has announced humanitarian €9 million to support the humanitarian needs of the Sahrawi people.

The financial support directed to the Sahrawi people will be allocated to food, safe drinking water and access to health care and education, said the Commission in a statement.

The statement highlighted that the four-decade-long conflict in Western Sahara had led thousands of Sahrawi refugees to rely on humanitarian assistance, with the European Union having since 1993 provided approximately 268 million euros in humanitarian support for the situation of Sahrawi refugees, which was a “forgotten crisis.”
