The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants and The America Team for Displaced Eritreans has issued the urgent appeal below.

Appeal

They:

  • Call upon UNHCR, the International Organization for Migration and the United Nations, donor countries and the international community to ensure that all available resources be deployed to move these vulnerable individuals to safety – including by airlifting them to safe countries – and to otherwise administer aid and protection as soon as possible.
  • Call upon the United Nations, the European Union, the African Union, UNHCR and the International Organization for Migration to monitor the overall situation more effectively, to promote comprehensive solutions for the thousands of refugees, migrants and trafficking victims warehoused in Libya, and to end their enslavement immediately.
Their appeal is issued on behalf of 54 other organisations including churches, NGOs and other groups working on the issue in the USA.
