Deadly Flood: UNHCR Sends Relief Supplies to Libya

(Last Updated On: 2023-09-26)
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said it had sent relief supplies to Libya to aid its response to the deadly floods that swept its eastern region.
In the past two days, the UNHCR had delivered essential medicines to treat over 10,000 patients at the field hospital in Derna, the city hardest hit by the floods in Libya, UNHCR said in a statement.
It said it had also given two rub halls and two generators to a hospital and an emergency room of Libya’s Health Ministry to help them better respond to emergencies.
According to the UNHCR, over 18,355 people affected by the floods had so far received relief items such as hygiene kits, plastic sheets, blankets, kitchen sets, and solar lamps, adding that more help is on the way.
On Sept. 10, Mediterranean storm Daniel triggered Libya’s largest and worst floods in decades.
The floods killed thousands of people and caused major infrastructure damage.
Thousands were said to still be missing while efforts to recover more dead bodies were ongoing.
