The United Nations says Mauritania urgently needs funds to deal with a growing refugee crisis. Thousands of people are arriving from neighboring Mali to escape an extreme interpretation of Islam and inter-ethnic violence. The camp is located in the far South East of Mauritania. Over the past six years, it has grown to host 55,000 refugees. Fadela Novak from UNHCR in Mauritania said: "We are simply not receiving the funds that we need. In UNHCR Mauritania we had 15 percent of the needs covered until 2018. WFP had 5 percent of their needs for the general food distribution. That simply means we cannot feed the people who are here". Pray that the needs of the refugees will be met through financial aid. Pray that the UN resolution may bring in the required support (The Bible, Proverbs 31:20).
