ALGERIA (Sahrawi refugees)

Support to Saharawi refugees






FROM 01/2011 TO 12/2011




Assistance to Elderly and Disabled People
In 2002, we partnered with the National Union of Saharawi Women to build and equip a second home for disabled people in the Dakhla camp. In addition, we extended our training program for Saharawi staff (group leaders and youth workers) to other camps, thus improving the care given to young, disabled people. A micro-credit pilot experience was also carried out in the camp of Dakhla. In 2003, the construction of a third special education centre was undertaken in El Ayoune. Moreover, the micro-credit project (creation of stalls selling everyday products, with the income generated by the activities being used to help disabled people and their families) was extended to three other camps in Ausserd, El Ayoune and Smara.
In 2004 and 2005, work in the mechanical repair workshop continued, as did our assistance to care structures for disabled people (maintenance of centres, equipment, staff training, etc). In 2010, Triangle continues its partnership with the Ministry of Social Affairs and is supporting Centres for disabled people in various ways: rehabilitation, distribution of supplies, staff training.

Bleach Production Unit
A small bleach production unit for the institutions was set up in 2003. Production and distribution of bleach to the hospitals, schools, etc. continues throughout the year.

Repair and maintenance of the ambulances and trucks used for food and water distribution
This programme, run in partnership with the Ministry of Transport, implemented a mechanical repair workshop for the ambulance and truck fleet. The latter were used for distribution of food and water. Considerable investment was put into the building of a second vehicle repair workshop.

Management and maintenance of the UNHCR’s operational base in Rabouni and Dakhla. This year, we also plan to improve sanitary facilities and optimise living areas.
