New HCR-led family visit exchange benefits nineteen families.
Under this programme, family members living in the Moroccan southern provinces visit their relatives in the Tindouf camps, southern Algeria, and vice-versa.
The new operation benefited 116 people from nineteen families, including 39 children and 40 women. Sixty-two people flew from Laayoune to the camps, while fifty-four others travelled from these camps to the southern provinces, a press release of the Moroccan Coordination Office with the UN mission in the Sahara (MINURSO) said.
Since its launch in March 2004, the family visit exchange programme has benefited 10,518 people, including 5,425 from the Tindouf camps.
