Islamic Relief has sent 30,000 pounds worth of vital medical aid to the besieged city of Misrata in Libya. The medical supplies were dispatched from the Tunisian port of Sousse.

Misrata is currently under rebel control with all roads into the city cut off by forces loyal to Colonel Gadaffi. This makes delivering humanitarian aid very difficult.

Islamic Relief has been liaising with the Misrata medical committee to find out exactly what is required. We have already been helping refugees leaving Libya and managing the camps on the Tunisia-Libya border on behalf of UNHCR.
