zaatari vantage point / by Maranie Staab

today i climbed a water tower today in order to get a better vantage on daily life in the zaatari refugee camp. 

open since july of 2012 and currently home to nearly 80,000 syrian refugees the zaatari camp has become a small bustling city with hospitals, schools, markets and syrian men, women and children working each day to create something that resembles the life that they once had outside of the camp.
