Updates on the Libya Floods
Keep updated here – Libya Floods news and updates | British Red Cross
Sadly, we have an update on our second emergency appeal in under a week, in response to the floods that have devastated areas in northeastern Libya. Libyan Red Crescent teams are on the ground in the affected areas, evacuating people, providing first aid and helping the ongoing search and rescue efforts. The Libyan Red Crescent teams are also assessing the scale of the emergency, and what is needed.
Whilst the situation unfolds in Libya, it’s clear that there are urgent and immediate needs to respond to and so we have launched an emergency appeal to help those affected – please share this appeal with your friends and family.
Colleagues who have family, friends, and connections to Libya and to Morocco will be affected by these recent and shocking events, as well as those of you who may be affected by taking these calls. If you’re struggling, please talk to your group leads and supervisors.
Our Psychosocial Support team is working to set up a safe space for staff and volunteers who are personally impacted by the recent earthquake and floods or are part of the region’s diaspora. If you need additional support, you’ll find our wellbeing resources on RedRoom, including our Employee Assistance Programme, which can offer counselling.
