The World Food Programme (WFP) has begun scaling up food distribution to reach 2.5 million Syrians by April.

The agency says that by the end of January, it had distributed food to approximately 1.2 million people in all governorates in Syria.

In order to address the growing needs throughout the country, the United Nations is expanding partnerships with national and international non-governmental organizations.
