COVID-19 Appeal to support Saharawis


Throughout 45 years of exile, refugees from Western Sahara have endured harsh conditions in the ‘desert of deserts’. Now, the Saharawi refugees are facing the impact of COVID-19 and more than ever they need our help.

That’s why we’re asking you to donate to support the humanitarian response of Oxfam Algeria, who are working hard to improve the supply of water during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Let’s stand with Saharawi refugees, let’s show them that they are not alone as they confront this pandemic.

We are aiming to raise $10,000 to support the emergency response – and we will need every Western Sahara supporter in Australia to help spread the word and chip in to raise that amount.

Can we count on your support to reach the target?

The continued solidarity of the international community is vital for the Saharawi refugees in their fight to protect against the virus – to improve access to the water, protective equipment and food.
