    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.

    Four USAID-Funded Mobile Cranes Arrive at Yemen’s Largest Red Sea Port (For the Media)

    A ship carrying four mobile cranes purchased by the United Nations World Food Programme and funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has arrived in Yemen’s Hodeidah Port to allow faster delivery of relief items for Yemeni families in the grips of the world’s biggest hunger crisis. WFP has been providing monthly food assistance to nearly seven million people in Yemen since August 2017 – double the number it was able to assist in the first half of 2017.  In January, WFP hopes to reach 7 million people, though as in previous months and due to financial constraints only about half of these people are receiving full food rations, the remainder will receive a smaller ration that covers 60 percent of their needs. WFP requires US$303 million to sustain life-saving support through June 2018.
