Seit Juli 2020 organisiert das Team des Alarme Phone Sahara (APS) in Agadez/Niger mit großem Engagement jeden Samstag eine Gemeinschaftsküche für Migrant*innen, die derzeit in der Stadt Agadez leben.
Die Gemeinschaftsküche ist eine praktische Antwort auf eine Situation, in der viele Migrant*innen und Flüchtlinge in Niger gestrandet sind, und täglich unter sehr prekären Bedingungen um ihr Überleben kämpfen. Diese ist durch die weltweite Coronakrise noch extrem verschärft worden.
For the end of the year 2020, Alarme Phone Sahara is calling for support by donations for the Collective Kitchen for migrants and refugees who are stranded in Agadez / Niger. The Collective Kitchen is a project of practical solidarity with the people who are blocked by policies of deportations, pushbacks and repressive border regime - a situation further aggravated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Für das Jahresende 2020 ruft Alarme Phone Sahara auf zu Spenden für die Gemeinschaftsküche in Agadez für Migrant*innen und Geflüchtete, die in Agadez / Niger gestrandet sind. Die Gemeinschaftsküche ist ein Projekt der praktischen Solidarität mit den Menschen, die im Niger durch Abschiebungen, Pushbacks und das repressive Grenzregime auf den Migrations- und Fluchtrouten blockiert sind - eine Situation die durch die Covid-19 Krise noch zusätzlich verschärft wird.
Originally from Nigeria, Roukayat is about 30 years old. She has lived outside her native country, settling in Tripoli (capital of Libya) since 2018, working as a housekeeper in an indigenous family. Her situation began to worry her about 8 months ago, she explains. Fallen ill and without assistance, she decided to return home. She arrived on September 04, 2020 in Agadez, Niger where Alarme Phone Sahara (APS) received the alert on the case of this young lady whose future is rocking between life and death and left to herself in a bus station. On September 08, 2020, a Nigerian national came to the APS office to inform about the case of Roukayat who would be in a bus station in the area and suffering from general fatigue, cough and nausea. Having been prosecuted and arrested in the past with a sentence of 12 months in prison, the informant did not want to take the risk of dealing with Roukayat's case personally to avoid falling into the trap of the intelligence services that enforce Law 036-2015 in force since 2016 in Niger. However, his duty to assist prompted him to turn to APS. The APS team went to the station mentioned above in the company of the informant for translation in case the woman had communication barriers.
Once again, Sudanese refugees living in UNHCR refugee camps in Agadez are adressing themselves to the UNHCR with the urgent demand for a solution for their situation, as they have been blocked in Niger since 2017 without any positive results for their cases. Read and spread their demands:
