TRIPOLI – The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) on Wednesday said that Japan had supported UNICEF emergency activities for vulnerable children in western Libya with 500,000 U.S. dollars.
“The government of Japan has allocated half a million dollars to support UNICEF emergency assistance for vulnerable girls and boys affected by the prolonged conflict and displacement in western Libya,” UNICEF said in a statement.
According to the organization, the assistance will reach at least 6,400 vulnerable children affected by the ongoing armed conflict in Libya with emergency education, child protection, water, sanitation and hygiene services.
“This contribution from Japan could not have come at a better time when we are seeking resources to support the vulnerable families affected by conflict,” said UNICEF Special Representative in Libya Abdel-Rahman Ghandour.
