Summary: 

To mark World Refugee Day, UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres travelled to Zaatari camp for Syrian refugees where he also met WFP's head of programmes in Jordan, Dorte Jessen (right). In this image, Jessen is showing the high commissioner a food voucher like the ones being provided to many families who’ve fled their homes in Syria. Vouchers give families the freedom to choose which foods to buy while helping out the local economy in countries like Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon.
