93% of Syrians displaced in Jordan live outside officially recognized camps, and well below the poverty line. The Mafra district is home to one of the largest refugee camps in the world, the Zaatari camp, where almost 80,000 people live. All international humanitarian efforts are focused on the Zaatari camp, without paying any attention to the people outside the camp.
Our commitment focused, in 2016-2017, on the spontaneous fields on the edge of Zaatari and Al Mafraq, where people live in conditions of absolute degradation and without any food, medical and hygienic support. SSCH brought locally purchased basic necessities and goods such as blankets, winter clothing, tents, school supplies, medicines as well as medical assistance during SSCh missions on site.
