Only a few days to go: We’re raising £25,000 to keep TheyWorkForYou running and make sure people across the UK can hold their elected representatives to account.Donate to our crowdfunder
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the international community's response to the United Nations' Flash Appeal for Libya; and what contributions they will make to support this humanitarian work.
The United Nations Flash Appeal for Libya is currently 46 per cent funded. Many Western and Arab countries have already provided generous support and we continue to press others to ensure that everyone contributes their share.
The UK is currently the third largest contributor to the Flash Appeal. We have helped fly home more than 12,700 migrant workers who fled Libya, provided emergency shelter for up to 12,000 people who have been displaced by fighting, and funded the emergency evacuation of around 5,000 people from Misurata. Our humanitarian assistance has also helped pay for the supply of urgently needed food, medical supplies and medical personnel.
We continue to work with other donors and key international humanitarian partners to identify needs and provide appropriate support.
