WeWorld has been working in Libya since 2018 to support the most vulnerable groups with projects aimed at strengthening civil society and human rights.
The impacts of COVID-19 have had a significant impact on people’s livelihoods and living conditions. COVID19, along with insecurity and a blockade of the oil sector for most of the year, further debilitated the already weak economic situation. The ability of many people to afford rent, as well as to cover other basic needs, was further weakened.
In 2020, more than 101,000 cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in Libya and the capacity of the health system to effectively respond to the pandemic was negatively.
We are working in Libya through the implementation of the following sectors of intervention:
- Humanitarian aid to host, displaced, returnee, migrant and refugee populations through projects promoting access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), and integrated protection programming.
- Capacity building for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).
- Promotion of respect for Human Rights.
In particular, we are working on two major programs:
- COVID-19 Integrated Response in South of Libya.
- Health intervention in the West of Libya.
