Published on 27 June 2010

Drought-ravaged areas of Syria continue to face “catastrophe” with tens of thousands of malnourished people excluded from international relief efforts, according to the head of the United Nation’s World Food Programme (WFP) in Damascus. Muhannad Hadi, who is leading the WFP’s emergency response plan in Syria, said 110,000 severely impoverished people would not receive aid, despite UN officers identifying them as needing help.
