Summary: 

During her recent visit to Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark met with WFP staff, including Programme Officer Dorte Jessen and learned about importance of the WFP voucher programme which bridges both assistance to Syrians and support to the local Jordanian market economy.  WFP will soon begin distributing to allow the camp’s occupants to buy their own food at local shops. Princess Mary was invited by our partner the Danish Refugee Council and she was accompanied on her visit by Danish Minister for Development Cooperation Christian Friis Bach.
