Islamic Relief is pleased to announce that it has now opened an office in the Western mountain city of Zintan.

Islamic Relief has been operating inside Libya since February, but now Islamic Relief has a fixed presence inside the conflict zone.

The office will enable Islamic Relief to better coordinate its operations inside Libya. The Islamic Relief chose Zintan because it is the second largest city in the Western Mountains and is located in the centre of the Nafusa region.

Islamic Relief has also delivered medical equipment to Jadu in the Western Mountains region.

In Jadu the hospital administrator, Dr Isam said “prior to IR’s contribution, there were few patients arriving in the clinic, and often times they had to be reoriented to other medical facilities as there was no adequate means of responding to their needs. Now, however, the hospital is able to accept patients and ensure full treatment.”
