Volunteer

We are enormously grateful for the dedicated volunteers so far, who have given their time to World for Libya’s humanitarian effort.

Donating your time to World for Libya is a great way to give your support. Every hour you can spare will help us.

World for Libya is a non-profit organisation which was established following the Libyan civil protests and uprising of February 2011.

Its overriding aim is to support humanitarian relief both directly as well as through third party charities. Through its unique ability to mobilise local people throughout the country, World for Libya is able to not only assess the need for different types of aid, but also to assist in providing the logistics for other charities – whether local or international.

Although we are in need of assistance in many areas, we are in desperate need of the following skills. If you are interested in volunteering for World for Libya, please email volunteers@worldforlibya.org.
