Description : Jordanian authorities have recently called on the international community for greater assistance to help the country cope with more than 500,000 Syrian refugees. The flow of newly arrived Syrians fleeing the conflict is not abating as hundreds try to cross the border into Jordan every day.
The traditional entry points in north-west Jordan are now harder to reach for the refugees due to the intensity of the fighting on the Syrian side. More and more families embark on a dangerous journey across Syria to reach the eastern border areas of Jordan in search of a safe haven. Between 200 and 500 people arrive every day in this remote desert area, where the Jordan Armed Forces gather refugees first in assembly points, then in transit sites.
Refugees can wait from 2 to 3 days in these desert locations before they are transported by bus to the Raba’a Al Sarhan Registration Facility. There they will be designated to either Al-Zaatari refugee camp or one of the other smaller camps established in Jordan to host Syrian refugees.
Since July 2013, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) have equipped three assembly points and two transit sites in the Ruwaishid area with water supply, sanitation facilities and waste containers in order to ensure immediate access to essential services, including temporary accommodation. ICRC trucks regularly deliver blankets, jerry cans and hygiene items while a local NGO distributes meals paid for by the ICRC twice a day.
