Contexte :

Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help themrecover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads in average 200 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 6 million people in 22 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.

Humanitarian situation and needs :

After more than forty years in power, the revolution of 2011 put an end to Mouammar Kadhafi’s reign. Libya has been ever since confronted to a challenging political instability due to the state breakup. Since 2014, a new civil war has been underway. In this context, the country is divided between different military and political forces. This instability has a strong impact on the Libyan population’s living conditions. It reduces day after day its access to essential services.

In 2019, thousands of persons remain displaced in camps across the country while some went back to their household. These persons, displaced or “returnees”, are facing a high level of vulnerability. Simultaneously, numerous refugees, asylum seekers and migrants fleeing authoritarian regimes or poverty are passing through Libya. Some of them are into the hands of human traffickers before risking their lives crossing the Mediterranean Sea.

Recurrent armed conflicts, political instability and economic collapse have led to a complex humanitarian crisis. The United Nations estimate 823,000 persons are going to need humanitarian assistance this year in Libya (OCHA, HNO 2019).

Thus, after eight years of crisis and instability, access to essential services remains largely limited, in particular for the most vulnerable persons. Première Urgence Internationale has identified an extremely concerning situation in terms of psychosocial disorders and access to healthcare. To a great extent, the former is due to the persisting conflict and the dysfunction of basic services. The latter is explained by infrastructure destructions, breaks in drug supplies and a shortage of medical material and qualified human resources.

In the Southeast of the country, the tensions between the Tebu and the Zway tribes seriously affects the health system and the access to basic services. Tribe communities, when they are a minority in the area, are suffering from segregation in most of Al kufra’s institutions, including health care facilities. This occurs in a context of underdevelopment and poverty that exacerbates the impact of the conflict on the population in the region. Indeed, this area has been suffering, even before the conflict, from a poor investment from the central government. However, few information are available on this area and its humanitarian needs due to a poor, if not almost inexistent, presence of NGOs.

Our actions in the Field :

In this context, Première Urgence Internationale intervenes for the improvement of both Libyan and migrant populations’ living conditions. Since the Libyan mission implementation in 2017, Première Urgence Internationale has been developing access to primary healthcare and psychosocial assistance in Benghazi and its surroundings.

In the framework of quick impact projects, our teams have led the restoration of three healthcare centers as well as the refurbishment of the import control Agency and of the Al Jala hospital’s emergency service. In addition, our five mobile clinics have been providing primary healthcare activities in the region of Benghazi. They provide free support for primary, maternal and child healthcare, chronic disease treatment and access to psychosocial support. PUI has also led healthcare activities in migrant detention camps located in eastern Libya. Refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in general are caught in a vice. On one hand, being victims of discriminations, they face difficulties to access essential services. On the other hand, they are compelled to live hidden from human traffickers.

This year, in partnership with other organizations, PUI launched a two-year project whose objective is to improve Libyan healthcare authorities’ capacities to treat chronic diseases, specifically in terms of personnel training and disease prevention.

Besides, Première Urgence Internationale has extended its intervention to the water, hygiene and sanitation sector. First, by restoring a pumping station in a district of Benghazi. Our teams also organize regular distributions of hygiene kits to families living in camps and precarious accommodations.

Furthermore, in 2018, PUI conducted an exploratory mission in the Al Kufra region (south-east Libya) in order to identify the specific needs of this isolated area and develop an adapted humanitarian response.
