WFP Geneva Spokesperson Elisabeth Byrs
New York - SPA

The U.N. World Food Program (WFP) said Tuesday that it raised $88 million in a 10-day global fundraising effort meaning that its funding for December is secure and the agency can resume providing assistance through electronic vouchers to 1.7 million refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, and Turkey.
The humanitarian situation in Syria continues to deteriorate as winter arrives,‌ WFP spokeswoman Elisabeth Byrs told reporters in Geneva. WFP plans to reach 4.25 million people inside the country in December. In November, we distributed enough food to feed just over 4 million people.
The figure means that 94 percent of the agency's monthly goal was fulfilled, though some people could not be reached because of ongoing fighting.
WFP needs to raise roughly $32 million every week to meet the food needs of people affected by the conflict in Syria, with every displaced Syrian requiring one dollar in order to be fed every day.
Byrs said that WFP would launch its response plan for 2015 in Berlin this week, alongside other U.N. bodies. They aimed to reach 4.5 million people inside Syria and a further 2.6 million outside over the course of the year.
WFP alone is appealing for more than $1.5 billion. $715 million for its response inside Syria and $831 million for its regional assistance program, Byrs said.
