Submitted on

Algiers, 19 December 2022 (SPS) - The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) expressed, on Monday, its gratitude to the Algerian Red Crescent (ARC) for its support to refugees hosted in Algeria, especially the Sahrawis.
"UNHCR is deeply grateful to the ARC for its support to refugees in Algeria throughout 2022 and in particular for its continued support to the humanitarian response to Sahrawi refugees in the camps," wrote the representative of UNHCR-Algeria in a letter to the ARC.
He added: "The UNHCR would not have been able to achieve what it has to accomplish without the support of the Algerian Red Crescent.
The ARC is also commended for its partnership that has enabled the UNHCR "to meet the needs of those who need it most" and for its contribution in terms of food aid (240 tons) that "helped avoid the crisis situation in the camps during the critical food shortage," says the same source.
