As the conflict in Libya continues, over 1 million men, women and children have fled the continuing violence to seek refuge in neighbouring countries, including Tunisia, Egypt, Niger, Chad, Sudan and Algeria.

Your much needed donation through UNHCR will help provide emergency relief items like tents and blankets for people who have been left with no choice but to flee Libya.

We are also seeking help to bring humanitarian assistance to those trapped inside Libya as the number of people displaced within the country is on the rise.

You can make a difference right now!
