Help children affected by the Libya floods
Children and families are facing catastrophic flooding and landslides after Storm Daniel swept northeastern Libya on September 11, 2023. Two dams have collapsed, sweeping entire neighbourhoods in the port city of Derna into the sea. More than 6,000 people have died, and about 10,000 people have been reported missing.
The storm and floods have caused significant damage to roads, electricity grids and other infrastructure. Schools and hospitals have been destroyed, electricity and telecommunication networks disrupted.
Children and families have been displaced and are in urgent need of safe water, shelter, medical supplies and psychosocial support.
