Over the last few months, WFP and its partner the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) have been able to reach displaced and besieged people with food in hotspot areas.Where access is difficult, WFP and SARC negotiate with all sides including community leaders and groups in control of the areas to allow food to cross.
