while in amman working in the zaatari refugee camp i had the opportunity to travel to the nearby "jerash" camp -- an area currently home to 29,000 registered palestinian refugees.  the camp was initially established in 1968 as an emergency settlement for the some 11,500 displaced persons who had left the gaza strip. since then the tents have been replaced by shelters - many made of asbestos - and the population has grown.
