UNICEF continues to fix flood damaged schools in Libya

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) says it has rehabilitated four primary medical centers in the eastern Libyan city of Derna, which was hit by deadly floods last year.

“UNICEF, in partnership with the International Medical Corps Libya, has completed the rehabilitation of water, sanitation, and hygiene facilities in four primary health care centers in Derna-Alfateeah, Albomba, Ras Alteen, and Lathron,” UNICEF said in a statement.

The upgrades, including the installation of doors, windows, electrical works, and light rehabilitation, have restored and enhanced essential services that were previously non-functional, the statement said.

“Now, around 10,000 people, including 4,300 children, have access to improved facilities. This ensures better health outcomes and increased wellbeing within the community,” the statement noted.

In September last year, Mediterranean storm Daniel triggered the largest and worst floods in Libya in decades. Thousands of people were killed and went missing, mostly in Derna.
