UNICEF to provide 6.5 million euros to cover Libya’s children needs

German Ministry of Economy said it had given UNICEF 6.5 million euros to help cover the needs of Libyan children.

Special Representative of UNICEF, Ghassan Khalil, said this new funding window by Germany will positively affect the lives of children in Libya in western, southern and eastern regions, including the areas that are difficult to reach.

According to Khalil, 30.000 of the people who fled wars and who were displaced along with their families will be targeted by this new programme, which includes child protection, water provision, and education.

Since 2015, Germany has provided UNICEF with 12.5 million euros to help assist the damaged by the conflict in Libya.
