Aliyen Mujtar Ali, 25, nurse. Pictured in Auserd refugee camp, Algeria: 'I studied to be a nurse in Algeria. It was something I dreamt about, three of my brothers are doctors. As a nurse it is a great way to help people, that means a lot to me. Despite all the difficulties, the lack of medicine, equipment, it is still satisfying to help people. I work in emergency and we lack equipment, an old man came to us recently and he died because we could not help him to breath. The Saharawi don't have the facilities. We have only ten Saharawi doctors both specialist and general. Most of our doctors live in Spain because of the money.'.
