Murzuq municipality in southern Libya has received two intensive care ambulances from UNDP through an EU-funded project which aims to improve access to essential services, create jobs and entrepreneur opportunities, and increase security and rule of law in the country.

The UNSMIL reported that Murzuq General Hospital, which currently provides health services to 65,000 people living in the city, will be using these ambulances to transport patients from Murzuq to neighboring villages.

“We are tremendously grateful for this contribution of the European Union to our municipality. Thanks to the ambulances that UNDP transferred today, the city council that I preside will be able to improve our services delivery.” Murzuq mayor Ibrahim Al-Shawish said while receiving the ambulances.
