Algeria

(A North African Maghreb state, Algeria (The People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria – PDRA) is at once the biggest country in Africa, of the Arab world and the Mediterranean. It borders Tunisia (North East), Libya (East), Niger and Mali (South), Mauritania and the Non-Self-Governing Territory of Western Sahara (South West), and Morocco (West). Algeria gained independence in 1962, becoming a member of the United Nations, the African Union, and the League of Arab State, and in 2008 re-joined the Union for the Mediterranean, which has brought together states bordering the Mediterranean and member states of the European Union.

Triangle Génération Humanitaire has been present in Algeria since 2000 carrying out support programmes for Sahrawi refugees in the South West, in different sectors and with UN (UNHCR) or European Union (DG-ECHO) funding. Please refer to our internet page for our Sahrawi refugee programme.

In July 2003, Triangle G H supported Algeria after the earthquake which hit Algiers and surrounding areas, principally extra-curricular projects in two schools, and the creation of a counselling centre for earthquake victims. These two projects were financed by the Fondation de France, which also facilitated the installation of an academic support programme for hospitalised children in the Boumerdès region (east of Algiers). From January 2011 to December 2013, Triangle G H has implemented a programme of assistance for Sub-Saharan African refugees living in Algiers and its environs with UNHCR funding.

Completed Programmes

On May 21, 2003, an earthquake of moment magnitude Mw=6.8 shook northern Algeria, about 50 km east of the capital city of Algiers. The consequences in terms of human loss and material damage were immense. The latest report states that 2.260 people died and 10.260 were injured. This earthquake, the most violent in Algeria in over twenty years, further intensified the trauma caused by internal acts of terrorism and a succession of natural catastrophes spanning a decade.

Assistance to Refugees from Algiers

The beneficiaries are mainly sub-Saharan refugees and asylum seekers living in the outskirts of Algiers (Cheraga, Delly Brahim, Beni Messous, Bordj el Bahri…).

Indeed, on December 31, 2010, approximately 139 refugees and 313 asylum seekers were present in the area, under UNHCR care. Most of these people hailed from sub-Saharan Africa (Democratic republic of Congo, Congo Brazzaville, Ivory Coast, Chad, Liberia, Somalia, Cameroon, but also Iraq, Palestine and Syria). As their status is not recognised by Algeria, these urban refugees could not enter the work market and consequently lived in total poverty until the UNHCR implemented its assistance program in December 2009. Some refugees find small jobs in the informal market but no statistics are available on the subject.

During this programme, Triangle G H will run the following operations:

  • Assistance, accommodation, payment of expenses and, if applicable, follow-up of minor works in the living spaces (plumbing, electricity…)
  • Provide predefined food aid on a monthly basis
  • Provide powdered milk, cereal and nappies for children and hygiene kits for women and children
  • Social care 
  • Exceptional assistance for children at risk who are not under adult care

The first initiated extracurricular activities in the Belouizdad district, Algiers, where our teams also worked in two schools: « Boudoua Tahar 1 » since (November 2003) and « Boudoua Tahar 2 » (April 2004).
The second partnered with the Algerian agency, ASPBOM-KENZA, to implement a psychological support cell for victims of the earthquake in Bordj Ména

We also concentrated on creating a crisis cell to receive and help victims of the disaster (presenting symptoms of trauma or not), and implementing a mobile team in charge of relaying with the centre and meeting families and individuals who could not visit it for various reasons.

The beneficiaries of this project were adults and children.

The general action of Triangle strongly contributed to improving the lives of the programme’s beneficiaries.

Creation of School Support Classes in Hospitals

An intervention strategy based on two axes:
- Help hospitalised children receive complementary schooling (Boumerdes sanitary sector),
- Identify the appropriate response to help children and teenagers who are not in the school system (Boumerdes regions).

Hence, the project was aimed at children who had been obliged to quit school (children in hospital) and at troubled adolescents who had dropped out of the schooling system.

Overall objectives:

  • Contribute to limiting school failure by attending children in hospitals and organising teaching sessions

Specific goals:

  • Obtain the Ministry of Education’s approval of the program
  • Enable hospitalised children to follow the national school curriculum, thus avoiding any rupture with schooling and easing their transition when they return to school,
  • Provide each child with educational requirements in a dynamic perspective (learning can contribute to improving the child’s health),
  • Evaluate the situation of adolescents who are not receiving any form of schooling and propose appropriate response to their plight (Boumerdes region).
