Algeria will never give up African migrant assistance policy

ALGIERS- The chairwoman of the Algerian Red Crescent, Saida Benhabyles, said Monday that Algeria will never give up helping African migrants, who are in Algeria because of the tragic situation and difficult conditions in their countries.

"Algeria is committed to its human and solidarity values inspired from Islam and its authenticity, based on the principles of solidarity," Benhabyles told reporters at the end of a visit to an African migrant encampment in Oued El Kerma, Algiers.

"We continue to bring help and support to all African migrants, especially those living in this encampment, and whose number exceeds 1600."

Benhabyles said the "recent attacks on Algeria" over the situation of African migrants "are unfounded."

Those who criticize Algeria "ignore our culture, our customs and human values inspired from Islam and our values of authenticity based on the principles of solidarity, mutual help and fraternity".

Benhabyles said Algerian Red Crescent delegation's visit to the migrant encampment "is an opportunity to share with those Africans, most of whom from Niger, the joy of Eid ul-Fitr."

She reiterated "Algeria's interest in helping those migrants who fled their countries because of the tragic situation there."
