al samara, age 15, of al-sawra, syria. 

abood, his sister, three brothers, mother and father fled syria 4 years ago and have been living in zaatari ever since. 

currently home to over 86,000 syrian refugees, zaatari currently ranks as the fourth largest "city" in jordan.

for the next few weeks i have the privilege of working with a talented team of doctors from Global Outreach Doctors and SAMS (Syrian American Medical Society) as they work to meet the many and varied medical needs of displaced syrians.
