Refugees in Morocco living uncertain conditions as they adhere to Europe dreams

(MENAFN) Oumar escaped to Guinea in 2018 looking for a better life in Europe, but now he lives a daily suffering of hunger, cold and police violence in Morocco.

“Just surviving every day is a battle,” on the words of the 25-year-old.

“It’s exhausting not eating enough, not sleeping under a roof, not feeling safe, experiencing racism.”

He spends his nights camped out on the pavement outside a Casablanca bus station, the makeshift home of hundreds of sub-Saharan Africans whose dreams of going to Europe are on hold in Morocco.

“We get chased away early in the morning by the police. Then we wander around and come back to the same place at the end of the day,” as stated by Oumar.

Like the other refugees interviewed in this report, Oumar’s name has been altered.

He has tried many times to cross Spanish land from Morocco but could not up till now.
