In late 2014, as the Syrian Conflict raged for its fourth year, the World Food Program (WFP) warned it was running out of money after an 89% funding shortfall. WFP, the world’s largest humanitarian agency dedicated to fighting hunger, provides food every month to nearly six million people in need in Syria and Syrian refugees in the surrounding regions. However, with only a small portion of the necessary funding raised, due to an unprecedented number of humanitarian emergencies around the world, WFP is now having to scale back its program after already struggling to provide basic necessities to refugees. WFP has had to cut its food voucher program and halve rations to 500,000 Syrian refugees. On World Refugee Day, U.S. National Security Advisor Susan Rice announced an additional $360 million in aid for Syria, which puts U.S. humanitarian assistance to the crisis at over $4 billion since 2011. Even with this announcement, the State Department has stated that WFP remains severely underfunded. If the funding shortfall is not addressed further, WFP will have to cut all help for the 440,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan in August. The Syrian crisis has become the biggest humanitarian emergency of our era, we must not forgot that real lives are on the line.
