Misery, Hunger, Unsanitary conditions: Migrant camp shows challenges

While Morocco prepares to welcome the signing of a historic agreement on migration, a lot of migrants languish in a camp in Casablanca in the grip of hunger, misery and unsanitary conditions.

Those Africans from sub-Saharian Africa who dream of traveling to Europe are a symbol of the problems that dignitaries around the world are trying to solve with the first pact on migration in the United Kingdom, being finalized at a conference in Marrakesh monday and tuesday.

A growing number of migrants live in the makeshift camp located on a football field near a busy Casablanca bus station. Lean food, lack of heat, lack of sanitation, lice and respiratory infections are the main concerns of Oulad Ziane camp.

Morocco is a major source of migrants in Europe but is also a transit country and a magnet for other Africans fleeing poverty.
