In Za’atari refugee camp, International Medical Corps’ health clinics treat thousands of people every month. Our mental health care and psychosocial services help children and young people traumatised by their experiences of war and fleeing their homes. We also operate a continuing medical education programme (CME) for Jordanian doctors, as we support the Jordanian health service to grow and develop despite the challenges it is facing.
Despite the hardships of life as a refugee, people have managed to create a life for themselves at Za’atari, and a lively one. International and Medical Corps and the European Commission, is working to create a safe haven for children in the camp. A place where they can express themselves and grow up in a normal environment, despite the challenges they’ve been through. These children are the future of Syria and after the crisis is over, they will be the ones to return, lead normal lives and rebuild Syria. Dina from the European commission explains why it is so important.
