Through the Voluntary Humanitarian Return (VHR) programme, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) has helped 60,000 migrants in Libya return safely to their home countries since 2015.

Funded by the European Union under the EU-IOM Joint Initiative for the Protection and Reintegration of Migrants and by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Migration Fund, the RHV programme has provided vital assistance to blocked migrants from 46 countries in Africa and Asia who wanted to return home and rebuild their lives.

It is worth noting that approximately 47% of the returnees assisted by IOM's RHV programme were in detention centers, while the remainder were living in urban areas.
