  • 1. Crisis in Syria: What’s in WFP food aid package?
  • 2. There remains no end in sight to the humanitarian crisis in Syria. Today, the World Food program is striving to help more than 4 million refugees within and beyond Syria’s borders, and hopes to reach 6.5 million by the end of 2013. Here’s a look into what WFP provides Syrians affected by the continued fighting, based on U.N. data provided to Devex.
  • 3. Inside Syria WFP provides a monthly food basket for a family of five: Kg Kcal/Person/Day Wheat flour 25 607 Rice 15 360 Bulgur wheat 2.5 58 Pasta 2.5 58 Pulses 5 113 Canned pulses 5 109 4.5 268 5 133 Iodized Salt 0.5 0 Total 65 1,706 Oil Sugar
  • 4. Turkey WFP, along with the Turkish Red Crescent, distributes electronic food cards, with each Syrian family member receiving a card loaded with 80 Turkish liras ($45) per month, enough to buy 2,100 kilocalories per person per day.
  • 5. Lebanon WFP mainly provides food vouchers of $27 per month to each Syrian refugee, to redeem food items of their choice including fresh produce, dairy products, vegetables and fruits, meat, chicken and fish, with total daily per person kilocalories of 2,100. It has begun transitioning to plastic e-cards containing the same value as the vouchers. Unregistered families receive monthly dry rations of 43 kilograms of oil, cheese, tuna, coffee, canned meat, pasta, halava, wheat flour, lentils, bulgur, beans, dry pulses, rice and sugar.
  • 6. Jordan Syrian refugees in all Jordanian governorates receive food vouchers of $34 to buy 2,100 kilocalories of food per person daily. But in Zaatari camp, WFP provides food rations amounting to the same kilocalories, distributes more than 25 metric tons bread per day – or about half a million portions of flat bread – and ready-to-eat meals to new arrivals, as well as runs a school feeding program. It has begun distributing vouchers so refugees can buy food inside the camp.
  • 7. Iraq Each refugee receives food vouchers of $31 a month, sufficient to buy 2,400 kilocalories of food per day.
  • 8. Egypt WFP offers food vouchers of $30 per month so each person can acquire 2,100 kilocalories of food daily.
