“It gets harder by the day for Lebanese people to put food on the table, so this assistance comes just in time,” said Abdallah Alwardat, WFP Representative and Country Director in Lebanon.
WFP will continue to monitor the conditions of the families it is supporting to ensure they can sustain themselves and “avoid the anguish of not knowing where their next meal is coming from,” he added.
According to WFP, the increase in assistance is being made possible by the contribution of the European Union, Germany, Canada, Norway, Italy, and France. The organization said it aims to support 750,000 Lebanese through its projects.
