A message from the Za’atari Refugee Camp

Blogs, In the field article written on the 03 Oct 2013

I have recorded a brief message for you from the Za’atari camp in Jordan. You can view it above.

As I watch the people living in this camp collect clean, safe water to drink, I’m constantly reminded that our wonderful Oxfam supporters helped to put this tank here. These refugees live in this camp without the worry of disease being spread through dirty water and a lack of sanitation. It is your support that is saving lives in Jordan and other countries in the region right now.

If you have yet to support the Syria Crisis Appeal, I urge you to please make a donation today. Any contribution you can make at this time would be greatly appreciated and will be put to immediate use to install new water tanks, build toilet blocks and showers, and provide basic hygiene facilities for the people affected by the war in Syria.

Thank you for your continued support.
