An estimated 1.3 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in Libya. Hundreds of thousands of people across the country are suffering. They are living in unsafe conditions with little or no access to health care, essential medicines, food, safe drinking water, shelter or education.
Our overall objective in Libya is to improve protection and life-saving assistance to displaced people, refugees and asylum-seekers and host communities. This includes supporting local public services which benefit the whole community, such as hospitals and schools.
The country presents a complex displacement scenario with 217,002 people displaced inside the country (IDPs) and 278,559 people who have returned home (returnees). Supporting IDPs is a priority for us and we provide them shelter kits, core relief items and cash assistance.
