Tripoli, 30 January 2015:
Humanitarian relief for 177 displaced families, most of whom are located in Gemenis, south of Benghazi, . . .[restrict]is to be provided by the International Medical Corps in collaboration with Canada.
Expressing its concern for the humanitarian plight of internally displaced families in Libya, the Canadian Embassy says that this step will help provide much needed basic survival assistance for up to 1,000 people.
Furthermore, the embassy is also partnering with three organisations – Clic Consultants, Tira for Research and Studies, and Why Me for Women’s Rights – to raise awareness about human rights and especially women’s rights.
In order to promote growing understanding of the issues involved, They plan to will work with local community bodies and hold workshops, particularly in the Jebel Nafusa area and Benghazi. A key objective of the project is that communities and organisations will then present key concerns regarding human rights to the Constitutional Drafting Assembly. [/restrict]
