More than 590,000 Syrian refugees are living in Jordan. CBM and its partners are supporting persons with disabilities in Al Za’atari camp.

CBM is supporting refugees with disabilities

In Syria, we are facing one the largest humanitarian crises of the century. Out of more than two million Syrian refugees, more than 590,000 are living in Jordan. CBM and its partners are working in Al Za’atari camp, which is in the Mafrak Governorate where there are more than 129,000 refugees.

The consequences of Syria’s war extend beyond its borders, as violence threatens to destabilise the whole region.

Among the most vulnerable populations in the camp, CBM and its partners focus on the individual needs of persons with disabilities, which are often overlooked.
CBM Emergency Response Unit and its partner are currently working every day in the camp: thanks to our programme, refugees with sensorial and intellectual disabilities have access to rehabilitation services and adapted health care.
