HIGHLIGHTS

  • WFP delivered enough food to support over 4 million people in March, of which almost 15 percent was delivered cross border from Turkey and Jordan

  • While efforts to negotiate access continue, WFP reached less than ten percent of those believed to be in need of assistance in hard to reach and besieged areas

  • Despite donor generosity, shortfalls forced WFP to cut assistance to some 1.8 million Syrian refugees by 30 percent since the beginning of the year

  • Continued targeting/verification efforts have so far reduced WFP’s regional caseload by 226,000 people
