Surviving abuse in Libya, after flight from Cote d'Ivoire FGM
Description: Over 200 million women and girls across the world have been subjected to female genital mutilation, while 20,000 seek asylum from FGM-practicing countries in the EU every year. Aisha*, not her real name, was seven years old when she underwent the procedure in her native Ivory Coast. Her eldest daughter was four when it happened to her. Last year Aisha fled with her youngest daughter to save her from being excised. But in Libya, she was caught in a nine-month-long nightmare, where she experienced repeated abuse and witnessed the killings of people detained with her. UNHCR calls for unrestricted humanitarian access in Libya to prevent risks of sexual and gender-based violence and to offer psycho-social support to survivors.

Crossing the Mediterranean Sea, Haunted by Abuse
Description: Almost 100,000 refugees and migrants have crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Italy through Libya since the beginning of the year, according to UNHCR reports. Most are fleeing poverty and conflict in sub-Saharan Africa. But, in Libya they’re caught in an endless cycle of abuse, violence and exploitation. The majority reports being kidnapped, forced into labour or sold into slavery by street gangs, smugglers and militias that operate in the country. UNHCR estimates that over 1.3 million people are in dire need of humanitarian assistance in Libya. UNHCR calls for unrestricted humanitarian access inside the country to ensure that international protection is given to refugees, asylum seekers and other vulnerable people.
