Summary

Conflict in Syria has forced millions of people to flee their homes, creating a humanitarian crisis in which food is a top priority. WFP aims to bring food assistance to up to 7 million Syrians between now and the end of the year. These include 4 million people inside Syria - on both sides of the front lines - and 2.7 million refugees in neighbouring countries.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Conflict in Syria has forced millions of people to flee their homes, creating a huge humanitarian crisis. WFP is seeking to raise more than $27 million every week to meet the food needs of people affected by the conflict both in Syria and neighboring countries. Under the revised Syrian Humanitarian Assistance Response Plan, WFPas requirements for its operations inside Syria alone until the end of 2013 totalled $490 million, but only 48% of funds for the July-September period has been raised.

How will this project solve this problem?

Working with partner organisations in Syria, WFP reached 2.5 million people with food assistance in June, is planning to feed 3 million people in July and is ramping up logistics and operational capacity to feed 4 million people by October. In addition, WFP is providing food assistance to nearly one million refugees sheltering in neighboring countries.

Potential Long Term Impact

WFP works to provide long-term solutions in addition to emergency food aid programs through its agriculture assistance programs. Support to the coming planting season will be critical. Funding must be secured by August in order to provide farmers with fertilizers and seeds to plant in October. Without such support, many will be unable to harvest wheat until mid-2015.
