We traveled to Jordan and Lebanon a month ago to initiate an assessment and recommendation report for an spanish NGO regarding the Syrian Refugee settlements. During these days we had diverse encounters with various people in charge of shelters from UNHCR, NRC, DNR and others in both countries, and we are looking into the possibility of designing a new prefabricated shelter which would substitute the containers. These containers are inappropriate for summer and the tents are very unsuitable for the winter months. The next link is a video of Zaatari Refugee Camp.
Number of refugees in the Region reaches 1.2 million mark.
The leaders of five UN humanitarian agencies (OCHA, WFP, UNHCR, UNICEF and WHO) make an unprecedented, collective appeal for a political solution to the crisis. Enough. Enough.
