The European Commission is providing €2 million in additional humanitarian assistance to Libyans who have been forced to flee their homes amid the increasing instability and violence, which has plagues the country over recent months. It is estimated that nearly 400 000 people have been displaced due to fighting in Libya since May this year.
“It is clear that there are huge needs and the emergency aid we are providing can be a lifeline to some of the most vulnerable families caught up in the conflict,” said the EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management Christos Stylianides.
