African Refugees Israel

Christian Wagner/ Jessie Wingard February 19, 2015

Some 2,300 refugees from Africa are currently living at the Holot camp in the Israeli Negev-desert. This year has been rainy and cold, and the barracks have no heating. An Israeli human rights organization has been trying to raise awareness about the plight of Africans stuck in the camp. But the refugees, many from Darfur and Eritrea, have little hope of getting accepted as refugees in Israel.
