The UK provides protection and support to refugees, including the Sahrawi people, through its core contributions to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR). UNHCR provides humanitarian assistance for 90,000 vulnerable Sahrawi refugees settled in five camps near Tindouf in Algeria. UNHCR provides security for both the refugees and the humanitarian organizations operating in the camps. The UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) is responsible for monitoring the ceasefire as well as supporting a range of assistance programmes to address the plight of displaced and separated Sahrawi families. The Mission was recently extended to April 2016.
