October 2023 – In response to urgent and growing humanitarian needs in Gaza, the West Bank and neighbouring areas, Global Affairs Canada is contributing to the 2023 Interagency Flash Appeal, launched by the United Nations on 12 October, with new humanitarian funding allocations. With the support of GAC and other donors, the World Food Programme (WFP) provides critical food assistance to affected persons in support of the 2023 Interagency flash appeal. Project activities include: (1) providing emergency food supplies; (2) providing cash assistance in the form of electronic vouchers, where shops are open and have food supplies; and (3) prepositioning of emergency food supplies.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes of this project include: (1) increased access to emergency food supplies; (2) increased access to cash assistance including electronic vouchers; and (3) ensured prepositioning of emergency food supplies.
