By the end of 2013, the refugees will be using "e-cards" at participating merchants in Lebanon as part of an initiative of the U.N. World Food Program and its private sector partner MasterCard, WFP said in a statement.
"The new e-cards will allow Syrian refugees to choose the foods they want, when they want," said Elisabeth Rasmusson, executive director for partnership and governance services of the WFP.
A similar program will be introduced at the end of 2013 for 300,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan, the statement said.
