Britain has pledged £250,000 in new funding to support the people of Derna and its surrounding areas through the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in Libya.

"Today (Monday) marks six months since Storm Daniel hit north-eastern Libya, bringing large-scale devastation and suffering. Bereavement, displacement and uncertainty continue to afflict the population of Derna and the surrounding areas," the British Embassy in Libya stated on X.

The new funding will be allocated to child protection services for vulnerable children and families, emergency health and nutrition awareness, and the rehabilitation of health facilities.

The embassy noted that the UK is the second largest donor to the UN response to the Daniel disaster, providing three clinics and medical teams. It has also provided 55 tons of essential relief supplies to the storm survivors and $5 million in aid in the aftermath of the disaster.
