WFP reaching newly accessible areas in Iraq (For the Media)
By the end of December, WFP aims to reach 1.6 million Iraqi Internally Displaced People (IDPs) across the country through food assistance and vouchers. Distributions that began in November are ongoing. WFP urgently requires US$31.8 million from now until May 2016 to continue to provide food assistance to conflict-affected Iraqis. A further US$25.1 million is needed to assist Syrian refugees in Iraq until May 2016.
