Summary: 

The World Food Program is quickly running out of food and money for Syria, where millions of displaced people forced to rely on the UN agency for daily meals risk being cut-out of food distribution programs as early as late July, warns the WFP’s top official in the country. (..) “We’ve received approximately 300 million dollars.” the World Food Program’s emergency coordinator for Syria Muhannad Hadi told a press briefing at UN headquarters Tuesday. “We’re still short 700 million.” Hadi says the ongoing lack of funding might force the WFP to further cut back the scope of distribution operations that are already struggling to meet growing needs on the ground.
