The refugee camps had been devastated by unprecedented flooding. Homes were gone. Buildings were down. Shops had collapsed. Everything was changed. Large ponds now covered the Sahara sands.
It was shocking to see the disaster that people with so little were now dealing with. What will the future hold? How do you rebuild when you have nothing?
As regular visitors, we wondered what would now change in life as we’d always known it there.
Seeing the concern in our eyes, our old Saharawi friend gently, simply said, “Don’t worry.
We are your refuge.”
