In Jordan, WFP fears that if it does not receive immediate funding by August, it will have to suspend all assistance to Syrian refugees living outside camps, leaving some 440,000 people with no food. WFP is funded entirely by contributions from governments, companies and private individuals. But its regional refugee operation is currently 81 percent underfunded and immediately requires US$139 million to continue helping desperate refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Turkey and Iraq through September.  Aid professionals Cash and Vouchers Contributions to WFP Jordan Lebanon Syrian Arab Republic English Middle East Syria emergency Video News Release Refugees and IDPs Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:20:39 +0000 WFP 647010 at http://www.wfp.org WFP Forced To Make Deeper Cuts In Food Assistance For Syrian Refugees Due To Lack Of Funding http://www.wfp.org/news/news-release/wfp-forced-make-deeper-cuts-food-assistance-syrian-refugees-due-lack-funding AMMAN – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is being forced to implement deeper cuts in food assistance for vulnerable Syrian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan because of a severe lack of funding.
