Syrian Crisis: How WFP Is Helping Families Fleeing Conflict

Humanitarian needs -- especially food -- are growing across Syria. WFP is currently reaching about 1.5 million people every month inside the country.

We are also helping the hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees who have fled into neighbouring countries. WFP currently has operations in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq. Learn more
