Electriciteitsrekening zonder inkomen: 25 euro per maand

‘In order to light our tent we tap electricity from the neighbors’ house. As their house is about five hundred meters away, and an electric wire leads from their house right through the desert to finally arrive in our tent.  We have to pay 35 dollars for this light every month. Via UNHCR we only receive foodvouchers and we are not allowed to work here. So 35 dollars is a lot of money… ’
