Desperate for funding, the World Food Program announced that it would halve the value of food assistance for Syrian refuges in Lebanon starting this month.If by September no new funds are raised, monthly assistance to needy Syrians will be cut altogether, said Joelle Eid, a spokesperson for WFP.Starting this month, registered refugees will receive just $13.50 per person per month. Refugees have already acutely felt the effects of the reduction, Eid said. Fourteen percent of refugee families pulled their children out of school because of the January cut, and 4 percent have sent their children to work as a result of the limited cash aid.
