Between 10th and 12th September 2023, Hurricane Daniel caused largescale destruction in northeastern Libya. With more than 4,000 deaths and 8,500 individuals still unaccounted for, the local authorities are facing extreme pressure while essential services such as water, electricity, and health services accessibility have been compromised.
In partnership with Super-Novae, an international NGO based in Libya since 2021, and in liaison with the local authorities, Med'EqualiTeam is taking an active part in setting up an emergency response to the situation, more specifically near Derna (eastern Libya).
The team is already coordinating with partners in the field, the project will consist of a centre hosting several activities, including primary healthcare and psychological support.
In the field the medical team will be mixed with Libyan doctors, nurses and international medical volunteers who will be involved in medical consultations, triage and optimising the centre.
We are looking for volunteers to start the project. If you are interested, go to the "Volunteer" page !
