Via ReliefWeb, a report from the World Food Program: Jordan Country Office: PRRO and EMOP* Situation Report #3, 1 - 31 August 2015. Click or tap through to download the report as a PDF. The summary:
• Due to a continued lack of sufficient funding, August saw WFP assistance levels in communities at their lowest so far. Assistance to nearly 229,000 vulnerable refugees will stop in September, in order to prioritize the extremely vulnerable in camps and communities.
• WFP’s Executive Director (ED) Ertharin Cousin visited Jordan on 10—11 August, meeting with Government officials, refugees, and other humanitarian organisations. ED Cousin voiced her appreciation for Jordan’s generosity in hosting Syrian refugees and recognized the national initiatives that aim to encourage social cohesion among local and refugee communities. “We are calling upon the donor community to recognize the suffering of our Syrian brothers and sisters and to continue to give generously so we can support desperate families until they can go home,” she said.
• Under the PRRO, food-for-work activities using cash transfers targeting vulnerable Jordanians will continue until end of 2015. Graduates from the programme will be enrolled in on-the-job training starting in September.
So if it's a choice between watching your kids slowly starve and heading for Europe, it's an easy decision.
