In the region there are four refugee camps for people from Western Sahara (Sahrawis): El Aiun, Awserd, Smara and Dakhla (not to be confused with the cities after which they are named), with a total population of 155,000. (A camp with the name "February 27" may either be a fifth, or it is an alternative name for one of the four.)
Facilities are few and living conditions are harsh. However, there is education, television, and several hundreds of satellite dishes.
