Turkish Red Crescent and the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) launched a food electronic card programme to assist thousands of Syrians who have been staying in Turkey.
The Food e-Card programme will start in five camps, one in Kilis and four in Hatay, initially for 25,000 Syrians, and will then be expanded to include a higher number of families, as cooking facilities and access to shops become available in other camps.
Each Syrian family will receive an electronic Food e-Card that is loaded with 80 Turkish Liras (US$45) per family member per month. This is enough to provide a basic diet (at least 2,100 kcal per person per day).
