Germany provides €500k to UN humanitarian service in Libya

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – Germany had supported the United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) in Libya with 500,000 euros, German Ambassador to Libya said Sunday.

“Humanitarian access is essential to reach people in need. Germany granted additional 500,000 euros to UNHAS,” Oliver Owcza tweeted.

“UNHAS provides critical support to over 30 organizations, helping them to reach Libyans, refugees and migrants all over the country,” the ambassador explained.

Due to the insecurity and chaos after the toppling of the late leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, Libya became a preferred point of departure for many illegal immigrants trying to cross the Mediterranean to reach European shores.
