Description : 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.
