Mrajeeb Al Fhood Refugee Camp

In the summer of 2001, I was in Amman, Jordan, when Syrian refugees began entering the border in search of a safe place.
Many people started mobilizing to help the newcomers, the government was not prepared, and people were stranded at the borders, many of them arriving with injuries, still bloodied from the conflict.
The sight was devastating. There was a clear call to action from many people: food drives started, donations were accepted, and makeshift clinics were being built, all these things began before the government's mobilization.
People took it upon themselves to help, and they did. The sense of empathy is what drives us to action, a sense that we are slowly losing. We have become accustomed to horrible sights; it's almost as if we have become immune to it all.
How can we fix these problems if we can't relate to them? These are a few images from the Mrajeeb Al Fhood refugee camp, also known as the Emirati Jordanian refugee camp.
