CARE: Syrian Refugees

Photo

Syrian children pose for a picture in front of their makeshift homes. On the outskirts of Amman, Jordan, hundreds of Syrian refugees have built a tent community because most could not pay the rent in the city anymore. A Syrian teacher, who lives in one of the tents, teaches the refugee students every day. The Jordanian schools are too far away and most cannot afford to pay the transport costs to get to it. A lot of the Syrian children have to work in order to help their families survive.
