Medical Aid Arrives in Libya After Devastating Floods

AL ABRAQ, Libya (September 12, 2023) – Medical aid supplies have arrived at Al Abraq airport in Libya to assist with the aftermath of severe flooding that has ravaged the eastern city of Derna. Dams burst during a powerful storm, causing extensive damage and loss of life in the region.

The medical aid, which includes essential supplies and equipment, was dispatched by the municipalities of Tripoli and Misrata, in addition to contributions from local businessmen. This collaborative effort aims to provide much-needed relief to the affected areas and support the communities grappling with the devastating consequences of the flooding.

According to the Red Cross, an estimated 10,000 people are feared to be missing in various parts of Libya due to the widespread floods. The situation is particularly dire in the city of Derna, where approximately a quarter of the city has been submerged. Tragically, at least 1,000 bodies have already been recovered in Derna alone, and authorities anticipate that the final death toll could be even higher.

Storm Daniel, which struck the region, compounded the challenges faced by Libya, a nation already grappling with over a decade of conflict and instability. The storm intensified existing vulnerabilities, leading to catastrophic flooding in multiple areas across the country.

The humanitarian response to this crisis is vital in providing immediate assistance to those affected by the floods and addressing the urgent medical needs of the population. As aid continues to arrive at Al Abraq airport and other affected regions, efforts are underway to support and rebuild communities impacted by this devastating natural disaster.

The people of Libya, along with international organizations and partners, are working tirelessly to provide relief and support to those affected by the floods. The road to recovery will be long and challenging, but with concerted efforts, hope remains for the affected communities to rebuild their lives and regain a sense of normalcy.
