Perwin Shamsaddeen Ali, a Syrian refugee living in a tent camp in northern Iraq, has been reduced to cooking one meal a day for her family of four.With no end in sight to the Syrian war, and regional host countries overwhelmed, many refugees see the perilous crossing to Europe as their only option.A funding shortfall last year forced the World Food Program, the U.N. agency responsible for feeding the refugees, to cut back. Some refugees no longer receive any food aid, while others get half what they did before. Fattah, who is also unemployed, said he received $70 in cash aid this month but it only lasted 10 days.In 2015, it gave food assistance to 1.8 million displaced Iraqis across the country, plus 60,000 refugees from neighboring Syria.
