Libya

We were one of the first international aid agencies to enter Libya after the outbreak of fighting in February 2011.

Conflict in Libya forced thousands of people from their homes. Thousands of people were displaced within Libya and many more now live as refugees in nearby countries. Families faced shortages of food, fuel, clean water and medical supplies, and many are in need of humanitarian aid.

After the initial uprising we distributed health supplies and supported medical clinics, helped schools stay open and set up a family centre for refugees in Tunisia.

As well as responding to the practical needs of displaced people, we focused on child protection and creating safe spaces where children can learn, play and recover from their experiences.
