Late last year, food aid to the Sahrawi refugee camps in Tindouf reached dangerously low levels. The aid has since been partially restored, but the refugees still live on a nutritional precipice. A recent World Food Program report on Tindouf confirmed that the Sahrawis need more and better supplies if they're to avoid lethal malnutrition.
Some people think Western nations are pressuring the Sahrawis to give up their struggle by reducing food aid. Originally, I disagreed, thinking the situation had to do with the developed world's apathy for humanitarianism involving people without oil. Still, it would be convenient for the United States and France if the Sahrawis were forced to return to Western Sahara because the camps were starving. Then, they could get Algeria to give up Sahrawi self-determination and go ahead with Maghreb integration.
Fortunately, it doesn't look like that will happen soon. Hurray for the refugees in Tindouf. I hope they get the soy supplement that the World Food Program recommended.
