Another humanitarian aid shipment from Italy to Libya

A shipment of medicines and hospital supplies arrived today at the Libyan port of Misrata, to assure basic medical care to 10,000 people for three months and specific treatment to people wounded in the war.

The initiative, carried out in cooperation with the UN Humanitarian Response Depot (UNHRD) in Brindisi, met the request for emergency aid made by the Authorities of Libya's Government of National Accord. It was part of a large humanitarian aid package to support the most vulnerable segments of Libya's population, which Italy launched at the beginning of 2016 for a value exceeding 2.5 million euros.

This is the third shipment of medicines that the Italian Cooperation has organized in the last three months. Like the previous two initiatives, it shows Italy's solidarity and attention for the people of Libya at a very delicate time in the Country's stabilization process.
