rehabilitation through sport for the syrian refugees living in the zaatari camp has been an ongoing effort since it first opened in july of 2012. 

many of the children arrive to the camp having experienced some level of hardship and trauma — whether from witnessing death and destruction in Syria and/or from the risky, often lengthy journey to jordan. sports give them an outlet and an opportunity to form new friendships in what is an otherwise chaotic, challenging and uncertain situation.
