What is the situation 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.
This natural disaster is not only driving new displacement but making life even more precarious for tens of thousands of refugees and internally displaced people in Libya.
After being uprooted from their homes by conflict and violence, they are displaced once again, forced to start over.
Working closely with national and international partners, UNHCR has 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.
