Libya Floods Emergency
Thousands of people have been forcibly displaced following catastrophic flooding in Libya.
Powerful Storm Daniel brought record-breaking rainfall, causing dams to collapse and neighbourhoods to be wiped out. Thousands of people have lost their lives. Families have been displaced, losing their homes and livelihoods due to surging waters.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is providing emergency assistance to those affected by the devastating flooding. Working closely with national and international partners, we’ve dispatched emergency supplies – such as tarpaulins, blankets, solar lamps and soap – are deploying an emergency team and activating an emergency hotline. But there is much more to be done, and we need help to scale up our response. You can make a difference.
