The Department for International Development (DFID) has contributed £13.4 million through international humanitarian agencies including the United Nations. This has helped fly home over 12,700 migrant workers from the borders, provided emergency shelter for up to 12,000 people driven out of their homes by the fighting, funded the emergency evacuation of 5,000 people from Misrata, and supplied urgently needed food, medical supplies and medical personnel. DFID has also contributed around £5.25 million through the European Commission (EC). In addition, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has contributed £500,000 to the United Nations Department for Political Affairs for activity to encourage a positive political and stabilisation process in Libya.
