In addition, more than 350,000 refugees have erossed into neighbouring countries seeking shelter and food. Since the conflict began, the EU has supported WFP in its provision of food assistance to more than one million people inside the country, but continuing conflict makes it difficult to reach all people in need. WFP is also distributing food rations to South Sudanese refugees who have fled to neighbouring oountries in camps and at border crossings, along with special nutrient- pocked foods for the most vulnerable. The bloodshed and misery of the Syrian civil war continued in 2013, resulting in more than two million people flecing the conflict and taking refuge in neighbouring Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Egypt.

On 8 November 2013, the Philippines was hit by Typhoon Halyan, one of the strongest and deadliest cyclones ever recoorded, leaving 14 million people affected and more than four million displaced. As a consequence, livelihoods, especially in farming and fishing, were hit hard, resulting in income losses of up to 70 percent, with communities losing their food stocks as well as the next harvest. In the immediate aftermath of the typhoon, WFP activated all its systems, providing 40 metrie tons of fortified biscuits and setting up logistical and telecommunication support for the entire humanitarian community. Thanks to the support of the EU, WFP was able to continue its activities on the ground, reaching over one million people with live-saving food assistance by the end of the year.
