Jordan, April 2013

First Photo: Early morning view of the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan that hosts several hundred thousand Syrian refugees.

Second Photo: Despite the funding shortfall that WFP is facing the organisation is continuing to provide assistance to the Syrian refugees that have left the country. In the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan WFP is handing our half a million pieces of bread daily as well as other food items in order to sustain the families that are undergoing this dramatic situation. 

Last two Photos: Families like this one are grateful to WFP and other organisations  for the support that they are receiving every day.

This jaw-dropping picture shows another side of the two-year long Syrian civil war: the staggering amount of refugees. The photo was tweeted by CNN International anchor Hala Gorani and shows the Zaatari refugee camp.
The Zaatari refugee camp, about eight miles inside Jordan on the Syria border, is a tent city sprung from the desert. The Zaatri camp is home to roughly 120,000-160,000 refugees fleeing the civil war. It is largely a city of women and children. About 60,000 of the camp’s residents are children. It has become Jordan’s fifth-largest city.
Secretary of State John Kerry got a first-hand view of the sprawling refugee camp on Thursday. Kerry is on his sixth visit to the region since taking the job earlier this year.
In the back-and-forth diplomatic and political saga regarding the Syrian civil war, the human element has sometimes been left out. The brewing humanitarian crisis in the region is yet another layer in this mass tragedy which has claimed over 100,000 lives (6,000 of which have been children).
