In which John visits the Azraq refugee camp in northern Jordan and shares the experiences of two young Syrian sisters, 10-year-old Aida and 12-year-old Majeeda, who arrived at the camp that morning with their family. In the coming weeks, I'll share more stories from Syrian refugees living in Jordan, and delve deeper into UNHCR's work in Jordan.
Thanks to Rosianna Halse Rojas (http://youtube.com/rosianna) for her help with this video and the trip and everything else, and also to Howaida Abdoulahad for interpreting help once I got back home.
