Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah received on Sunday the Regional Director of UNICEF in the Middle East and North Africa, Adele Khodour, to discuss coordination efforts in supporting the flood-affected areas east of Libya.

The meeting also grouped the Minister of State for Prime Minister and Council of Ministers Affairs, Adel Jumaa, the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) head, Haider Al-Sayeh, and the UNICEF Representative to Libya, Michele Servadi.

Discussions focused on UNICEF’s working mechanism in Derna, including supporting primary health care, coordinating with the NCDC and the Environmental Sanitation Department, and activating the statistical survey for children through the organization’s statistics office and the Ministry of Planning.

PM Dbeibah called for further cooperation between UNICEF and the NCDC to support primary health care, as he stressed the need to accelerate service delivery to Derna and nearby areas.

UNICEF said its office in Libya delivered on Sunday to the flood-affected areas 65 tons of relief aid, including medical supplies, clothes, and school needs.
