Algeria, January 26, 2020. Tarva, 27, prays in the Wilaya district of Awserd. The pastry workshop stops twice a day - at 2pm and 5pm - for prayers. Sahrawis are stateless people; no country recognises them as their citizens. Since 1975, about 300,000 Sahrawis have been living in the refugee camps near Tindouf, in Western Algeria. Their refugee crisis is among the most protracted in the world.
