IHH continues its humanitarian work in Libya where a civil war is going on without fail. IHH, which was initially providing medical supplies and medicine to the hospitals, is now also delivering food aid to tens of thousands of internally displaced people in Benghazi, Tripoli, Misrata, Derne and Sebhe. The aid campaign does not dismiss the illegal refugees who set off from various African countries and caught in Libya on their way to Europe.

Due to the ongoing clashes in Libya, currently 15 thousand families in Benghazi are sheltering in public buildings, government offices and schools. Moreover, 17 thousand families, who fled the clashes, are living in Tripoli, Misrata, Zawiya, Zaletan and Baida. In Sebhe 3 thousand families had to flee their homes due to the clashes between Tebu and Tawarik tribes. 4 thousand illegal refugees caught en route Europe are detained in 7 detention camps in Misrata and Tripoli.

IHH, which delivered $2.5 million of aid to Libya during the revolution, has delivered $200 thousand of aid from the donors to Libyan families affected by the civil war.
