Libya

We continue to help families

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

Today, our teams are still there, supporting displaced people and working to ensure children are protected.

Ongoing conflict in Libya has forced thousands of people from their homes. Thousands of people are displaced within Libya and many more now live as refugees in nearby countries. Families face 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.

Today, we’re working with partners to scale up our response across Libya to support children and families affected by the conflict. As well as responding to the practical needs of displaced people, we’re focusing on child protection and creating safe spaces where children can learn, play and recover from their experiences.
