Libya and Japan flags

The Japanese government announced the provision of an urgent relief grant to Libya, amounting to three million dollars, to help those affected by the floods that ensued from Storm Daniel in eastern Libya on September 10 and 11.

Japan's aid comes as a response to the massive damage caused by the flood disaster, as the government of Japan will begin implementing an urgent emergency relief grant worth three million dollars through the International Organization for Migration and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

It explained that two million dollars will be allocated to support the efforts of the Organization for Migration to provide urgent health services, shelter, and non-food items, in addition to allocating one million dollars to support UNICEF’s efforts in the field of child protection, and the provision of water, sanitation, and public hygiene.

The Japanese government reaffirmed its commitment to continue to stand by the Libyan people, and its readiness to consider providing more necessary assistance, in response to emergency needs on the ground in the affected areas.
