Muhannad Hadi, the UN World Food Program's emergency co-ordinator in Syria, was in Ottawa on Friday to update officials on a crisis he says has no end in sight. Hadi said the ranks of Syria's one million refugees, currently in neighbouring countries such as Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, could reach three million by the end of the year. (..) "If we don't deliver food, people have no options. It's over." Hadi said. "Mothers will see their children go to bed hungry. That's it."
