We operate in Libya since 2019 with a coordination office in Tripoli, delivering humanitarian assistance and implementing development projects. We support the most vulnerable groups through actions aimed at strengthening the civil society, guaranteeing access to basic needs and the respect of human rights through the establishment of a solid operational footprint across the key regions of the country: Tripolitania, Cyrenaica and Fezzan and recently Bengasi.


More than a decade after the revolution, Libya is still experiencing a situation of crisis with profound political, social, economic and humanitarian consequences – the latter mostly in urban areas. The conflict has caused considerable damage to infrastructure and drastically reduced access to basic services and income for the population, further worsening the conditions of the groups living with limited resources.

Moreover, the hostilities have induced hundreds of thousands to be internally displaced. The major needs are therefore in protection and access to essential services, with the vulnerable groups, which include refugees and migrants, that face additional challenges also in terms of discrimination and violation of human rights.

Our intervention

We operate in Libya since 2019 with a coordination office in Tripoli, and our interventions span various sectors such as water and sanitation (WASH), healthcare, environment and sustainability, access to quality basic services and community empowerment by leveraging a multi-sectoral approach.

Through collaborative efforts with local partners and stakeholders, we enhance livelihoods, promote social inclusion, social cohesion and conflict prevention, fostering resilience among vulnerable populations. Being a complex and dynamic environment, we remain committed to upholding humanitarian principles and delivering effective, needs-based assistance to those affected by conflict, displacement, and socio-economic difficulties in Libya, thus striving to contribute to the sustainable development and well-being of communities across the country.
