Bringing relief to those in need
In the wake of a devastating storm, search and rescue efforts led by local authorities, in collaboration with the Libyan Red Crescent Society and other aid groups, are ongoing.
The United Nations is responding with a comprehensive needs assessment that will help delineate funding requirements.
“From CARE’s experience in supporting severe flood emergencies such as this, we know that immediate lifesaving support is urgently required in the first days,” Lazar said.
“Those injured, pregnant women, mothers and their children, as well those with disabilities are often the most affected following a crisis of this scale, which can leave them in precarious and vulnerable situations.”
“Our hearts are with all Libyans at this difficult time.”
