Why is this project important?
According to UNOCHA, In Libya, there are 526,000 people in need of health care of which 118,000 are internally displaced people and 184,000 are migrants from other countries.
At Lifeline help, we specialise in delivering medical aid to the needy. Libya has a unique situation in comparison to other countries. It has endured war, poverty, and much instability. Our top priority is to provide medical assistance to those who need it.
