The ongoing conflict in Libya between Gaddafi’s government and opposition forces—predominantly on the northern coast—has resulted in massive numbers of civilians fleeing the violence. Since the conflict began in February 2011, more than 710,000 people have fled Libya, many of whom are migrant workers primarily from Mali, Egypt and Chad. The vast majority of refugees fled to Tunisia and Egypt while others fled to neighbouring countries. PWS&D is responding through the ACT Alliance to support those most affected by the conflict in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya.
