4.1 million Syrians receive aid

2 Sep, 2014

The UN World Food Program says a record 4.1 million Syrians received food rations in August as more convoys were able to cross frontlines and the borders with Turkey and Jordan. Over the last six weeks, WFP and partner agencies have crossed front lines to reach more than 580,000 people, over four times the 137,000 reached in the preceding six weeks. Regional emergency coordinator for the Syria crisis, Muhannad Hadi:

We are reaching more people every day with urgently needed food assistance – many of them have been going hungry for months.
