The Italian Foreign Ministry has endorsed €1.4 million as an urgent assistance to help back up the international humanitarian organisations working in Libya.

“Half a million euros will be allocated to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) as a medical aid for IDPs in Libya and other civilians affected by the conflict. The Italian funding is to be monitored by Libyan
Red Crescent (LRC).” The Italian FM stated.

In addition, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) will also have a share of €450,000 to help it operate in Libya and other €450.000 will go to the International Organization for Migration in order to provide for the healthcare needs of migrants and provide them with supplies and help them return to their countries.
