Summary

At the Egyptian border crossing in Libya, many have been waiting for days as they try to get valid travel documents to get back to their home countries. Alongside the International Organization for Migration, ICRC delegates are helping those stranded to contact their country representatives to get temporary travel documents issued, which will take them through the border. Egyptian Red Crescent volunteers are handing out food rations to thousands of people every day.
