Mercy Corps is working on scaling-up its presence for mid and long-term programming for Libyans, including those who have been internally displaced as well as returnees. It is imperative that Mercy Corps present itself as a key and reliable partner with various donors, INGOs, government authorities and civil society actors, to be part of the process of positive change. Mercy Corps, with its global experience in working in countries undergoing major transitions, will be a key contributor in the process, bringing knowledge, expertise and strong management skills to position the agency as a partner of choice for progressive change in Libya, as well as in response to vulnerable populations in Libya.
Libya is currently in the midst a major humanitarian crisis impacting the entire country as well as a number of the neighboring countries. The main thrust of the work of Mercy Corps along with its national and international partners for the foreseeable future is to focus on meeting the urgent war-related humanitarian needs across the country. The heightened insecurity and continuous acts of violence make the humanitarian response not only more challenging, but increasingly complicated. We believe that a natural synergy exists between our response to the needs of Libyan internally displaced and those made vulnerable as a result of the conflict within Libya, and responding to the needs of those forced to flee and now living in displacement in Libyan cities. Mercy Corps will continue to work closely with the Libyan authorities and organizations and with our international partners to ensure an effective humanitarian response.
