The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said that 803,000 people in Libya need humanitarian assistance, including displaced people and refugees.

The UNHCR stated in a report that among those in need are 168,011 internally displaced persons, 661,892 returnees and more than 42,000 asylum seekers and refugees registered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

The UN body added that poverty and lack of access to basic services, such as health and education, are among the common challenges.

Over the past three years, UNHCR has announced the completion of 148 fast-track projects, mostly in the health, education and protection sectors across Libya, spending nearly $7.5 million on these projects.

Each project is executed in consultation with national and local authorities and the active participation of local communities.
