ABOUT WFP

Food and food-related assistance lie at the heart of the struggle to break the cycle of hunger and poverty. WFP Turkiye provided humanitarian assistance to nearly 1.6 million vulnerable persons in 2023 through in-kind and cash-based transfers. Our beneficiaries remain at the very heart of everything we do in Turkiye. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.

Since June 2014, a temporary protection regime has granted Syrian refugees access to basic services such as healthcare and education. Asylum seekers from other countries continue to benefit from International Protection status. WFP re-established a presence in Türkiye in 2012, in response to the Syria crisis and transitioned its programmes from basic needs assistance to livelihood support as the needs of the target population evolved. WFP Türkiye’s Country Strategic Plan (CSP 2023-2025) seeks to continue assisting refugees in camps, provide services to humanitarian and development partners, and implement sustainable livelihood programming to build the self-reliance of vulnerable Turks and refugees alike.
