World Food Programme Contribution 2018


In light of critical underfunding of WFP Operations in oPt and in particular due to the worrisome socio-economic situation in the Gaza Strip, Switzerland will support the implementation of WFP’s food assistance activities with an additional contribution of 1 million Swiss Francs. Poor and severely food insecure non-refugee households will be targeted through cash-based transfers (vouchers) operated through a network of more than 175 local partner shops in the West Bank and in the Gaza Strip.
