Struggling for life

The lucky ones, whose lives have been spared, face an uncertain future in squalid camps, abandoned ports and factories. As the political situation seems to be moving towards a solution, people in the field still struggle to make it through, especially vulnerable sub-Saharan African migrants and internally displaced Libyans escaping the mayhem triggered by six months of fighting between rebels and pro-Gaddafi forces. The European Commission Humanitarian Aid & Civil Protection department (ECHO) has provided €80.5 million to support the victims of the conflict. Projects are being implemented by a number of partners, among which the International Migration Organization (IOM) and UNHCR, the UN body for refugees. A report from Janzour port, near Tripoli, where one thousand people have been stranded for months.

This is part of a series of features on projects funded by the EU’s Regional Programme, prepared by journalists and photographers on the ground or the ENPI Info Centre. (ENPI Info Centre)
