UN Lacking Funds to Continue to Feed Displaced Middle Eastern Refugees

September 18, 2014

According to a piece in The Guardian, "The UN  ( World Food Programme) warned on Thursday that it will be forced to cut food rations for more than 6 million Syrians from next month unless it received more funding."

"The WFP said it had no money for programmes in December."

“We have reached a critical point in our humanitarian response in Syria and in neighbouring countries and unless we manage to secure significant funding in the next few days, I am afraid we will have no choice but to scale back our operation,” said Muhannad Hadi, WFP’s regional emergency coordinator for the Syrian crisis.
