Assisting more than 160 million people in 123 countries and territories each year, the World Food Program (WFP) is the leading humanitarian organization saving lives and changing lives, delivering food assistance in emergencies partnering with governments, and providing common services that allow the entire humanitarian community to save lives in emergencies and build the resilience of food insecure people and communities. As the international community has committed to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition by 2030, one in nine people worldwide still do not have enough to eat. Food and food-related assistance lie at the heart of the struggle to break the cycle of hunger and poverty. WFP Turkiye provides humanitarian assistance to nearly 1.6 million vulnerable persons in 2023, in the form of 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.

Türkiye hosts the highest number of refugees in the world – 3.7 million people. Around 63,000 of the most vulnerable of them live in eight camps in the southeast, while the majority live in cities and villages throughout the country. The Government of Türkiye has demonstrated leadership and generosity in hosting this large number for close to a decade. 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. The CSP has been revised to integrate the recovery efforts following the devastating earthquakes of February 2023, focusing on restoring and revitalizing the food value chain in the earthquake-affected regions.
