The lack of space, weak infrastructure and extremely limited resources have put immense strain on the country. It is now nearing a breaking point. The Za’atri camp is the largest shelter serving Syrian refugees; it is not enough. Families feel trapped, crowded and further from home, hoping to seek shelter elsewhere. However, because they are unable to work, refugees cannot provide for their basic needs.
The future is looking bleak for these refugees, and lack of funding provide an added strain for families looking for basic needs for survival. UMR is helping the people of Jordan with health screening, psychosocial support for children, and providing refugees with winters kits and care packs. Donate now to help the people of Jordan.
- Jordan hosts approximately 655,675 Syrian refugees, which amounts to about 10% of the population
