It's the most dangerous journey in the world

Refugees and asylum seekers have travelled to Libya in the hope of finding a safe place to call home after fleeing violence, persecution and conflict in their home countries. UNHCR is on the ground providing immediate humanitarian aid to those arriving, departing or living in Libya. This includes core-relief items, shelter, cash and finding safe, legal routes for resettlement.

Provide life-saving humanitarian assistance and safer routes to a new life.

Libya remains Africa's main departure point to Europe for migrants seeking safety and opportunity. Refugees and asylum-seekers continue to risk their lives at the hands of traffickers and smugglers in attempt to reach Europe. Those who choose to make the dangerous journey across the Mediterranean are at risk of drowning, turned away when they reach a port, or are intercepted at sea and sent back to Libya to be held in detention centres. UNHCR needs your support to help with the immediate humanitarian crisis in Libya, and find safe, legal routes for resettlement for refugees and Internally Displaced Persons in Libya.

Please make a generous gift to support the most vulnerable in Libya, to save lives and to bring hope to those who need us the most. Your UNHCR gift will be 100% tax-deductible.
