Za’atari Refugee camp in Jordan on the Syrian border.
February 26, 2013
Near the reception area, Save the Children is caring for unaccompanied and separated children.
There were more than a dozen lost girls and boys as young as 6 years old who were residing at special designated areas.
About two to three lost children are arriving at the camp every day. Most are eventually reunited with their parents or extended families within the camp.
However,four unaccompanied children have been living at the space for the past three months.
The Save the Children team has been working day and night to assist the refugees in Za’atari, and there is good coordination between all the NGOs and agencies working to make room for new refugees.
But everyone is anxious about what will happen if this exodus continues. Will the humanitarian community and the Jordanian government be able to shelter, feed and clothe another 60,000 people?
Thousands of children need caring people to support Save the Children’s response efforts. Please give generously to our Syria Children in Crisis Fund.
