“The amount of persons who are in need to have of food stuff aid in Syria has exceeded six-7 million, persons who are in important food stuff need to have,” Muhannad Hadi, the U.N. Globe Food Program’s regional director advised Reuters.
“As times move, as months and months move, the amount of persons who are in need to have is expanding. And the condition on the floor is not improving at all… In crisis like Syria, the ones who experience the most are surely the children.”
Hadi, in Brussels for an global conference on Syria arranged by the European Union, explained WFP provides food stuff parcels to 4 million persons in Syria and feeds approximately two million persons in the neighboring states each month.
The EU contributes funding to the WFP Syria program, which, in accordance to Hadi, is primarily restrained by the problems of reaching several elements of Syria.
