On 10 and 11 September massive Mediterranean Storm Daniel ripped through Libya. More than 3,500 people are reported dead and 9,000 people are reported missing. 300,000 children are affected, and numbers are rising.

People have been stranded in their homes with no electricity and access to water. Some have been evacuated and given temporary shelter in schools, hotels, and relatives’ houses. Three main hospitals and four clinics are completely out of service.

UNICEF is responding urgently to this disaster, supporting the Government of Libya and coordinating closely with emergency response partners to reach affected children and families with life-saving supplies and services. UNICEF is mobilizing core relief items including essential medical supplies, hygiene kits, and children’s clothes. We are especially concerned about children’s access to clean water and the prevention of communicable diseases like cholera.​

In emergencies like this, it is also critical to establish safe spaces to protect children. UNICEF is providing child protection assistance including early childhood development kits and recreation kits.​

Please help us reach children and families affected by these deadly floods. Fundraise for UNICEF today.
