CASARES | During this summer, it has not been possible to carry out the Holidays in Peace programme, whereby Saharawi children spend the summer with Spanish families, while receiving medical care, a balanced diet and away from the harsh heat of the desert in summer.
The pandemic has made it impossible this year to implement this initiative, but the host families, through the Association of Friends of the Sahrawi People, have prepared a consignment of various products to take to the refugee camps in Tindouf.
The Casares Council has collaborated with this initiative by donating part of the material and providing the necessary transport to move the boxes for each family to Malaga, from where they are expected to leave shortly for their destination.
The Mayor of Casares, Pepe Carrasco, has shown his support for the Sahrawi people yet again, and explained that the Council "has donated hygiene materials, such as masks, screens and caps, as well as educational material (pencils, plasticine, glue, brushes, paints, etc ".
Antonia Morera, representative of the Association of Friends of the Sahrawi People in Casares, has informed us that there are a total of 14 host families in the municipality and that all have prepared a box filled with food, medicine, and other basic necessities that are in short supply in the refugee camps.
