$120m still Required as Libya Tackles New Crisis

From the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA):

The situation in Libya remains volatile. Fresh outbreaks of violence are placing a strain on existing funds as humanitarian responders work to assist those affected.

Across Libya, humanitarian programmes continue to provide urgent assistance to internally displaced persons (IDPs) from previous waves of displacement, as well as refugees and migrants who remain among Libya's most vulnerable.

The United Nations and its humanitarian partners in Libya launched a Flash Appeal for Sirt requesting US$ 10.7 million to provide life-saving assistance to 79,400 people living in the Sirt municipality.

Lack of liquidity as well as shortages of medical supplies, food and non-food items, particularly con-ict aected towns, continue to exacerbate vulnerabilities.

Health assistance remains a priority as the situation gets worse by the day. Food stocks are running out by October and those returning to places of origin and new IDPs require protection and shelter support. The HRP is severely underfunded. This undermines the timely delivery of assistance to those most needs.
