"WFP is responding to this emergency by providing food assistance to more than 1.5 million Syrians inside the country.”

The northern part of Lebanon is where most Syrians are finding refuge. That includes Tripoli and the Bekaa Valley. Their main goal is to simply survive. As the number of refugees increase, the World Food Program, has also had to increase its assistance.
