The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) has urged the world leaders to come up with concrete steps to address humanitarian crises in Libya.
NRC said that the development in Libya has made it imperative for the world leaders to turn attention to the dire humanitarian situation in Libya as almost one million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in the crises ridden country.
“As world leaders meet today in Paris for the international conference on Libya’s forthcoming elections, hosted by France, the Norwegian Refugee Council calls for real action to address the growing humanitarian needs of Libyans and migrants across the country.
“Displaced Libyans and migrants tell us they want a better life for their families and children but we have seen very little commitment to address their needs,” said NRC’s Libya Country Director Dax Roque.
“NRC is calling for real commitments from leaders to address ongoing humanitarian needs, the recent crackdown on migrants and rehabilitation of critical services and infrastructure. Today almost a million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in Libya, including internally displaced Libyans, refugees and migrants.
“Stability in Libya won’t be achieved through elections or withdrawal of foreign fighters only. Reconstruction and scaled-up aid delivery are vital to help people recover from one of the most neglected crises,” said Dax Roque.
