Children in Libya are in danger

A powerful storm in Libya has caused two dams to collapse, causing catastrophic damage in the north-east city of Derna. More than 3,500 people are reported dead and more than 9,000 people are reported still missing. The city has a population of 100,000.

In an emergency, children are always among the most vulnerable. We are especially concerned about children’s access to clean water and the prevention of deadly diseases like cholera. In emergencies like this, it is also critical to establish shelters to protect children and families.

Please donate to our Libya floods appeal to help us reach children and families affected by these devastating floods.
