Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.
Handicap International is changing his name and becomes « Humanity & Inclusion ». HI, Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

HI has offices in more than 55 countries.
Since 2011, continued conflict in many parts of Libya and political instability have resulted in a vacuum of effective governance and caused significant collapse in the country’s political-institutional system. Security, rule of law and social and economic well-being of the Libyan population have all been severely affected.
The healthcare system in Libya is one of the hardest hit by the ongoing instability, having deteriorated near to the point of collapse. Ongoing challenges include increased rates of chronic illness, disability and access to essential services such as medicine and rehabilitation. Hospitals struggle to absorb the number of patients and to cope with lack of resources, including a shortage of staff and essential medicines and supplies.
The identification of the most vulnerable individuals and the rapid response to essential needs is a priority for the humanitarian community working throughout Libya. In addition, the number of victims as a result of conventional weapons and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) continues to grow. In contaminated areas, local populations, internally displaced persons and returning populations are all at risk of death and injury.
From operational bases in Tripoli and Misrata, and Benghazi from the last quarter of 2018, HI is currently implementing a humanitarian programme with the following activities:
The Operations Coordinator is responsible for ensuring the overall coordination and oversight of HI’s operations in Libya in the sectors of protection, including mine action, and health.

SPECIFICITIES: International staff are based around 50% of the time in Tunis and 50% in Libya. In Libya, International staff are based in Misrata and accommodated in a compound composed of a shared guest house and an office.
The are movement restrictions in place and isolated living conditions.
Libya’s security is fluctuating and prone to violent conflict erupting at any moment, as it is suffering from a lack of a consolidated government since 2011. International staff are based in Misrata and accommodated in a compound composing a shared guest house/office with other expatriates and should expect isolated living conditions with movement restrictions and a curfew in place. Very limited opportunities exist for socializing however a small number of other expatriates from other NGOs are based in Tripoli and Misrata.
Tunisia is a relatively safe country although security incidents over recent years demand the requirement for close follow up of the context and movement restrictions in some areas of the country. International staff in Tunis can expect a good standard of living with access to most amenities, no movement restrictions and a small expatriate social scene. In Tunis international staff are either accommodated in a shared guest house with other expatriates or in single accommodation, depending on contract type. Travel between Tunis and Libya is reliable and regular with commercial flights to most major cities.
