The ICRC has been present in Libya since 2011, supporting conflict-affected communities. This includes helping families know the fate of their missing loved ones; promoting the international humanitarian law, improving access to essential services such as healthcare, water, and electricity; supporting physical rehabilitation centers; and empowering communities with livelihood projects.

In the wake of Storm Daniel on September 10, the ICRC is working with its partner the Libyan Red Crescent to deliver medicine, food, and household items to survivors. We are also helping in the dignified management of the dead.
