WASHINGTON - Handicap International has deployed two specialized emergency response teams to Tunisia and Egypt to assist the tens of thousands of people fleeing the fighting in Libya.
Handicap International has sent an emergency response team to Ras Ajdir on the Tunisian side of the border with Libya. Bertrand Effantin, Handicap International's Coordinator in Tunisia, explains:
"The people who have crossed the border are tired, visibly affected by the very trying times they have been through, and are disorientated.
