WFP Food Reaches Families in the Besieged Town of Darayya (For the Media)

The United Nations World Food Programme has delivered food for the first time since 2012 to the besieged town of Darayya, a suburb of Damascus, as part of a joint UN and Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) convoy. More convoys are planned to all of the 19 besieged locations in Syria as part of the plan for June, following the Government of Syria’s approval to reach all these locations. In total, during the first few days of June, WFP has already provided life-saving food assistance to more than 1.4 million people across Syria as part of the organization’s monthly plan to reach 4 million displaced and vulnerable people.
