Description : "It is easy to make, you just need a plastic bag and tow sticks, you tie them together and use a thread, then you run with the kite. There is always wind here, this weather is perfect for playing with a kite", he says.

The situation in the camp is overwhelming and dire. Since December 2018, more than 63,000 people arrived in the camp.
Today, about 74,000 people live here. Around 90% of those are women and children. An estimated two-thirds are children.
