Summary

Since fighting broke out in Syria four years ago, it has become the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP)'s largest and most complex emergency worldwide. Today, more than a third of the population has fled the ongoing civil war, with an estimated additional 3,000 Syrians fleeing every single day to neighboring countries. More than half of the refugees are children. WFP is working every day to reach families in desperate need of food assistance.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Since the Syrian conflict erupted in 2011, WFP has succeeded, despite fighting and problems of access, in meeting the food needs 4 million displaced people inside Syria and up to 1.8 million refugees in neighboring countries. Syria has become its largest and most complex emergency worldwide.

How will this project solve this problem?

Amid the chaos, WFP is working every day to reach families in desperate need of food assistance. Every month, WFP provides families with rations including flour, pasta, cooking oil, beans, sugar and canned foods. WFP is also providing food vouchers to vulnerable pregnant and nursing mothers, giving them access to a variety of nutritious foods, including fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, dairy and meat - all essential to improve their own nutrition and that of their babies.

Potential Long Term Impact

WFP has been on the ground since the crisis began. As the world's largest hunger-relief organization, WFP is on the ground 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, reaching more than 80 million people in 75 countries. On any given day, an average of 50 planes, 30 ships and 5,000 trucks are delivering WFP assistance to thousands of communities across the world struggling with poverty and famine.
