Dina El-Kassaby of the UN World Food Programme (WFP) will never give up on Syria. Traveling inside the war-torn country, El-Kassaby is trying to bring the world the stories of Syrians, who might otherwise be forgotten.
The WFP officer recently penned an essay on the desperation felt by Syrians, who have now suffered through 4 years of civil war. She also published a story featuring the lives of 12 Syrians affected by the conflict.
WFP is leading the hunger relief mission, feeding almost seven million Syrians. This includes refugees in Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq.
It’s one of the largest humanitarian operations since World War II. It’s one of the most dangerous. The support of the international community is vital to sustain this relief, until peace can ensue.
El-Kassaby’s plea to help Syria has been quoted in the New York Times and on the History News Network. You can read her full article at the World Food Program USA.
