Highlights

  • WFP dispatched humanitarian assistance sufficient for an estimated 5 million people across all activities in Syria in August.

  • The humanitarian situation in Dar’a al Balad (Dar’a governorate) deteriorated significantly in August as a result of the ongoing fighting and deteriorating security situation. A ceasefire was agreed to on 31 August and held in September. WFP provided emergency assistance through ready-to-eat rations.
