BACKGROUND: The events in the Syrian Arab Republic have led thousands of Syrians to flee to the neighbouring countries of Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Turkey, resulting in significant humanitarian needs. Through this Emergency Operation, WFP provides food assistance as part of a broader framework of support to refugees under the leadership of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). It supports strong partnerships with governments, United Nations organizations and Non Governmental Organizations (NGO), and is aligned with the United Nations Syrian Regional Response Plan.
