Video on msnbc.com: Zaatari, one of the largest refugee camps is five miles from the Syrian border in neighboring Jordan. Now there are more than 25,000 and of the 120 thousand people living there, half are children. In this first of a special series, ITV’s John Ray reports from a makeshift children’s clinic inside the camp.
In this video, NBC Nightly News visits Jordan’s Zaatari camp, where hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees are living in increasingly precarious conditions. In the first 5 weeks of its activities here, MSF carried out roughly 2,000 medical consultations. Increased international aid is urgently needed so that Jordan can cope with the rising influx of people and remain a refuge for Syrians fleeing violence in their country.
