Children suffer amid Syria strife

Many children in the al-Zaatri refugee camp in Jordan have to forgo education to work and support their families.

    As diplomatic efforts to solve the crisis in Syria continue, thousands of refugees continue to cross the border into neighbouring countries.

    There are around 30,000 Syrian children in the al-Zaatri refugee camp in Jordan. Only 11,000 of them go to school. 

    Moreover, the UN says the three schools it runs have reached their capacity.
