The World Food Program [WFP] has suspended assistance to circa 34 thousand Syrian refugee families living outside the camps in Jordan at the end of 2014; rather announcing that these families have access to "financial resources and revenues, enough to meet their food needs."
Rozana has recently followed the conditions of some of these families, and the situation they find themselves now in meeting their nutritional needs. We found some of them have resorted to working illegally; while others await assistance from relatives and neighbors.
Shatha Al-Maghribi, Information Officer at the WFP, finds that the idea of suspending aid to these families is based on setting priorities, faced by limited resources. Any refugees may appeal this suspension, based upon which aid may or may not be resumed.
She adds that many Syrian families undergo changes in their data and the situation. She advises that they should constantly refer to the WFP to update their data and family status information.
