Libya Emergency Flood Appeal

Libya Flood Recovery Emergency Appeal

Responding to the devastating flooding in Libya, HRF has launched this emergency appeal to give support and relief to communities affected.

North Eastern Libya was hit by unprecedented flooding as Storm Daniel made landfall on Sunday 10th September 2023. The resulting flash floods have washed away entire communities, collapsed dams, damaged vital infrastructure and brought havoc to the lives of ordinary Libyans

The city of Derna has borne the brunt of the flood’s destructive force. Reports from the city state that a massive humanitarian disaster is unfolding for survivors, with around 30,000 people displaced from their homes. Even more horrifying are reports of thousands of city residents being washed out to see by the powerful flood surge. As the days continue, bodies are being found washed up on the shore. 

As of 21st September, the World Health Organisation are reporting the death toll standing at approximately 4,000 people, with local organisations stating the toll to be in excess 11,000 as rescue operations continue.

The HRF response

We’re making preparations with the Libyan Red Crescent and local partners organisations on the ground right now, to bring essential food aid and shelter to those who have lost homes and livelihoods.

Using our knowledge, expertise and partnerships built up from over 30 years of delivering humanitarian aid around the world, Human Relief Foundation is ready to respond further to this tragedy. We can only do this effectively with your generous donations.

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.
