    The problems are piling up for refugees from the war in Syria who live in camps in Jordan.

    Almost a quarter of a million of them are having to get by with less food after assistance was withdrawn by the World Food Programme.

    Many who have chronic diseases are also struggling to cope after losing free medical care.
