Libya: People hit by devastating floods need your help

Our response

The ICRC has been on the ground in Libya since 2011 and is now mobilizing teams and life-saving supplies to support survivors together with our partner the Libyan Red Crescent (LRCS) in the most flood-affected areas. We also provide support with the dignified recovery and burial of the dead.

We are distributing medicines, food, first aid kits, and household items to emergency response authorities in Libya to help thousands of families in need. We are sending additional ICRC teams to the region to distribute humanitarian assistance, including kitchen sets, mattresses, and hygiene items for over 5,000 people in Derna in the coming days together with the LRCS.

Our teams will also be evaluating the risk posed by unexploded ordnance and abandoned munition stores in Derna to prevent further death and injury.
