every year i visit jordan a lot of people ask me ” what do you see in jordan?” “whats so great about jordan?” and “why do you love it so much?” well whats not to do and whats not to love? this country is full of history and adventure and im a girl who LOVES adventure! great monuments and temples, swimming in a dead sea without ever drowning or fearing a shark that might eat a leg or a hand or maybe a head 😛 exploring the history of petra. off roading, climbing mountins, riding camels and sleeping in tents and be a true bedouin for a day in wadi rum :p and much MUCH more!
those were the reasons why i wanted to go to jordan at first place, but when i heard stories of the refugee camps that my grandmother keeps telling me about, i just got very curious on how those camps looked, how people lived, how they work, eat, sleep… etc and i finally got my chance to visit the refugee camps six years ago to see how i can help and ive been visiting ever since, helping people became a need to me as much as i need coffee.
i took as many photos as i can to show you what they suffer, what they dont have and how they live and i hope it can make you see half of what i saw 🙂
as you can see, they dont live in camps anymore, but the houses are just in a very bad shape, no windows or roofs, weather gets very cold in winter, it rains and snows a lot, no medications, so many horrible sad stories that gave me the goosebumps.
wars dispersed them, they took refuge in jordan, some from palestine, iraq, lebanon, syria… etc
