Volunteer Work Libya


Volunteer Work Libya

Since the fall of Muammar al-Gaddafi, the hopes of a new dawn in Libya have failed to materialise with much of the country and its population centred in the major towns, having fallen into chaos with factionalised terror groups vying for power in the fragmented and fractured state. As such, there are very few volunteer opportunities in what was and should be a very prosperous country with a well-educated population. What volunteer work there is at present focuses on delivering humanitarian aid particularly in Benghazi and Tripoli where hundreds have fled intense fighting and sought refuge in schools and other buildings.

The Libyan government is warning of the imminent collapse of the country's health care system due to the fighting which will have major repercussions in the country. Inevitably volunteer organisations offering work placements include the Red Crescent which is one of the few agencies still operating in Libya, medical agencies who are only looking for highly trained medical personnel and other charities and organisations outside of Libya who are working to prepare for what they hope with be a future of peace, reconstruction and reconciliation.

Please note that many volunteer opportunities in Libya were disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic which led to the permanent closure of some volunteer opportunities and restrictions on others. Hopefully things are now beginning to return to normal. If you run or know of a volunteer work project in Libya let us know by contacting us here. We look forward to hearing from you!

In a shameless bit of self-promotion, read this novel by the African Volunteer Network team about volunteering in Uganda. "Well worth the read especially for those working with non-profits abroad. In fact, it should be required reading."
