Libya Floods Emergency Appeal

On Sunday 10 September, Storm Daniel hit north-eastern Libya, causing strong winds and sudden heavy rainfall. The result was devastating flash floods, where “tsunami-like” waves swept away everything in their path. In the port city of Derna, two dams burst under the pressure and entire neighbourhoods were destroyed by the three-metre-high flood waters. Thousands of people were killed, and bridges, buildings and vital infrastructure were badly damaged. The eastern cities of Benghazi, Sousa, and Al-Marj also experienced flash flooding and, like Derna, are in urgent need of vital aid and support. 300,000 children are affected, and numbers are rising. People have been stranded in their homes with no electricity and access to water. Some have been evacuated and given temporary shelter. Three main hospitals and four clinics are completely out of service.

Thousands of people face severe food shortages and disease caused by polluted flood waters. One of the big challenges is preventing potential outbreaks of disease like cholera or diarrhoea due to polluted flood waters. As floodwaters begin to retreat in many of the worst-affected parts of Libya, 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.  Some communities have been totally wiped out, with not a building left undamaged. Given the level of damage across the region we know the recovery process will be long and difficult, potentially taking several years. Thousands of people have had their lives turned upside down and are in desperate need of help. The international community must grasp the level of devastation. International assistance is urgently required for our Libya Floods Emergency Appeal.
