WFP completed the first distribution at the area between the Jordanian and Syrian border, (the berm), since August, 2016. The distribution, which began 22 November and ended 14 January, delivered life-saving food and other essential items to 15,290 households.
Due to funding constraints, the monthly transfer value was reduced in Egypt from USD 24.2 (EGP 400) to USD 16.6 (EGP 300) to cover January requirements.
The Emergency Social Safety Net (ESSN) rollout continued in full coordination and partnership with the Ministry of Family and Social Policies (MoFSP) and the Turkish Red Crescent (TRC), across all of Turkey.
As of 31 January, applications to the ESSN from 153,543 households (767,700 people) were received.
The number of ESSN beneficiaries reached was 121,177.
