    WFP Exclusive Video Shows First UN Team to Visit Formerly Beseiged Deirr Ezzor, Syria (For the Media)

    For 17 months (April 2016 until August 2017) the World Food Programme ran an airdrop operation on behalf of the entire UN in Syria. Airdrops were a lifeline for the people trapped inside Deir Ezzor City. Following the lifting of the 31/2 year long siege by ISIS, this week WFP went on a milestone mission to the city to document the effects of three and half years of living under siege. This is the first mission for any UN personnel since mid-2014 when the entire governorate became inaccessible.

    2017 A Year of Unprecedented Humanitarian Emergencies (For the Media)

    In 2017, we saw progress in defeating global hunger being reversed, as record numbers of people have fled their homes to escape fighting. Out of the 815 million hungry people on the planet, 489 million live in countries affected by conflict. It’s been a challenging year with an unprecedented number of hunger emergencies, almost all driven by conflict. Four countries stared famine in the face, and in one country, South Sudan, famine was declared in February in two counties. It was beaten back by a massive, sustained humanitarian response and improved access but there is still a risk that famine could appear in other locations.  WFP is on the ground and in the air, doing whatever it takes to reach people in some of the most remote places on earth.
