Nina Nedrebo, member of United Nations System associations deplored Thursday in Algiers the "alarming" humanitarian situation in the Sahrawi refugee camps.

On this occasion, Nedrebo, who underlined the "good" organization in these camps, urged the international community to give "more substantial" humanitarian aids to the Sahrawis, who have been suffering since 35 years.

"The humanitarian situation is alarming and Sahrawis lack food and medicines," she told the press at the end of her meeting with the head of the Algerian National Committee of Solidarity with Sahrawi People (CNASPS), Mahrez Lamari.

Nedrebo, who is also member of the Norwegian Movement of Solidarity with Sahrawi Cause, pointed out that despite the difficult situation, Sahrawi leaders are doing their best to organize life in refugee camps, particularly through the construction of schools and hospitals.

She added that she had, during her weeklong stay in the Saharawi refugee camps, a "very easy" access to information, adding that she held talks with President of the Saharawi Red Crescent.

Mrs. Niderbo, who is also petitioner before the 4th Committee on Decolonization of the UN, said that at the end of her mission, she will have to prepare two reports, one for the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and another for the NGOs (United Nations), which entrusted her with this mission, "in an effort to mobilize more consistent humanitarian aid to Sahrawis," she said.

"My visit to the Saharawi refugee camps is a message of solidarity with the people of Western Sahara in its struggle to exercise its right to self-determination," she added.

She took this opportunity to "urgently" appeal to the UN to act to end violations of human rights in the occupied territories of Western Sahara.

Mrs. Niderbo also called for the application of the UN resolutions recognizing the right of the Saharawi people to self-determination "Everything feeds the silence encourages injustice and colonial policy of Morocco, " she underlined.

Moreover, she announced a project of cooperation between her NGO and organization of the Algerian Muslim Scouts (SMA) "for better teaching conditions for Saharawi children.
