Storm Daniel hit the eastern Libyan coast on 10 September, destroying local infrastructure and killing many thousands. This is one of the biggest disasters in Libya’s history. Anecdotally, everyone in Libya will know at least one person who has been directly impacted by this tragedy.
The global anaesthesiology family and WFSA stand in solidarity with Libya. We send condolences to our colleagues in the Libyan anaesthesiology society, their loved ones and the wider community. Our thoughts are with them as they seek to recover and rebuild.
Donations to support the Libyan population and emergency work can be made via WFSA partner, ICRC, URGENT: HELP LIBYA NOW | International Committee of the Red Cross (icrc.org)
