Press Release: Loss of DRC colleague in Libya

It is with great sadness that the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) must inform of the passing of a colleague from our country team in Libya.

Posted on 12 Sep 2023

Our colleague, a national of Libya, lost his life on 11 September 2023 in the city of Derna, while selflessly taking part in rescue efforts after a powerful storm triggered devastating floodings of the city. 


Our colleague was a dear and valued member of our team and he worked tirelessly and selflessly to inform his community about the risk of mines and unexploded ordnances. He will be forever missed. Our thoughts are with his family and relatives as they go through these difficult times.
