Benghazi, 5 June 2015:
Displaced Tawerghan families living in refugee camps in the west of Libya are being provided with . . .[restrict]food aid and other essentials for Ramadan which starts in a fortnight’s time.
The Libyan Red Crescent and the ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) with the help of Tawergha Local Council started distributing food and non-food items to some 380 displaced families in camps in western Libya yesterday. The air baskets are being given particularly to Tawerghan women, seen as the main prop and breadwinner of the families.
Exile has meant that many Tawerghans have had great difficulties buying food and other essential supplies, and Ramadan is usually a time of increased expenditure.
Earlier this week, it was announced that Tawerghan refugees living in nine camps across Libya were to be provided with better water, sanitation and hygiene facilities by UNICEF. [/restrict]
