Human Relief Foundation has partnered with WAFA Relief to deliver much needed aid to displaced residents who have fled the stricken city of Derna, to the relative safety of Misrata, situated in North east of the country. WAFA Relief (We Are For Africa), are specialists in delivering aid to regions of Africa and the perfect delivery partner for Human Relief Foundation, as we do not have a regional presence in Libya. The distribution of HRF funded aid was delivered by WAFA Relief, with supervision from the Red Crescent to assess where the need was greatest amongst the local community.
Wafa Relief have been out in Misrata for seven days from 27 November to 4 December, to deliver vital food aid that could only be made available through individual donations and fantastic fundraising efforts made by groups like yourself. With infrastructure and supply lines still disrupted, as clean up efforts continue, we’ve been providing food parcels for flood victims. Approximately 600 people, including 120 families have benefitted from this first wave of delivery. Items included in the food parcels included:
- tomato puree
Although particularly challenging, WAFA Relief signed an agreement with Libyan suppliers to procure the relevant food items for the aid packages, ensuring that funds stay in the country and benefit the Libyan economy in its time of need.
There is still much to do as we aid the recovery and future for those who have had lives devastated by this tragic event.
A single donation of £50 can provide immediate relief in the form of hot meals, water and first aid, to those who have lost everything.
A donation of £100 or more can provide shelter, mattresses and blankets to communities whose homes have been washed away by the powerful flood surge.
