UN appeals for $71.4M in aid following devastating flooding in Libya

The United Nations on Thursday urgently called upon donors to provide $71.4 million in aid to support approximately 250,000 individuals affected by the recent floods in Libya within the next three months.

“There is a heightened concern regarding the potential rise in morbidity and mortality rates if immediate and adequate aid is not dispatched to the affected regions,” the UN document said.

The appeal is for approximately one-quarter of the 884,000 individuals reported to have been directly impacted by the flooding.

According to satellite analysis, approximately 2,200 structures have been inundated by flooding in Derna, the city most severely affected. The situation in the submerged city of Sousse was described as “critical.”
