The project “Family gardens in the Saharawis refugees camps of Tindouf, S.W. Algeria” has been very successful (2005-2007).  Today, the refugees continue the construction of new gardens with the help of NGOs and individual sponsors. A series of videos will show that it is rather easy  to offer to all the families in the camps the possibility to produce fresh food.  (To be continued)

It has been shown very clearly that family gardens contribute significantly to solving problems of hunger and malnutrition in refugees camps. Local production of fresh food with vitamins and mineral elements is essential for the health of refugees, in particular for their children. What is possible in the Sahara desert, can be applied in all the refugees camps.
