More than 620,000 Syrian refugees have arrived in the north of Jordan since the beginning of the conflict. A large part of this population lives in the Za’atari camp in dire conditions.
So far there are no possibilities on site for treating those who need surgical intervention, whether for war-related injuries or children seriously burned as a result of domestic accidents or other trauma. The only suitable hospital for treating these people is in the capital, Amman, which is not equipped to respond to this additional demand.
In order to tackle this issue, HumaniTerra is developing a centre in the Irbid region and designing a treatment program dedicated to these pathologies.
