Fox News- A World Food Program initiative that handed out hundreds of millions of dollars of food vouchers has been confronted with "persistent" diversion and sale of the vouchers to middlemen for cash by the growing flood of Syrian refugees in neighboring Jordan and Lebanon, according to its internal auditors. One reason for the diversion: the agency did not have systems in place to identify valid recipients, and its procedures were "not detailed enough to provide assurance that voucher transfers reached the correct beneficiaries in the correct amount," the auditors have said. 1 comment
