Libya continues to be the main transit point for departure from North Africa towards Europe, UNHCR said in a monthly report.
UNHCR’s interventions at disembarkation points in Libya focus on the provision of life-saving assistance and protection monitoring, to identify persons in need of international protection, as well as vulnerable individuals, such as unaccompanied and separated children, elderly, medical cases, women at risk or victims of trafficking.
UNHCR through its partner International Medical Corps provides medical services and core relief items.
In addition, UNHCR rehabilitated WASH facilities at six disembarkation points, in Al-Zawya, Tripoli (3), Tajoura (Al Hamidiyah) and Al-Khums.
