October 25, 2012 - Za’atari - As Syrians continue to flee their borders, Jordan is hosting more of their neighbors from the north than any other country in the region.

 More than 210,000 Syrians have fled to Jordan since March of last year and according to the UHNCR there are 105,000 either registered or awaiting registration.

However funding requests have not kept pace with the demand for services in the Za'atari refugee camp which as of last week was hosting more than 37,000 Syrians. 

More than 50% of those in the camp are under the age of 18 according to the UNHCR. 

As Amy Hybels reports, concern for the welfare of the refugees continues as winter approaches.
