As of Sep. 18, TotalEnergies has shipped nearly 50 tons of essential goods, comprising medical supplies, food parcels including baby food, personal hygiene kits and solar lamps. Further shipments of approximately 50 tons of essential goods are planned in the coming days.

This operation is carried out by a dedicated TotalEnergies team, in coordination with the National Oil Corporation and the Red Crescent, with shipments organized by truck from Tripoli and by plane from Paris.
