while over 85,000 syrian refugees are currently living in the infamous zaatari camp this accounts for only about 13% of the 638,000 + syrians living in jordan. the great majority are making due in random, makeshift tent camps or struggling to survive within the towns and cities of the jordanian kingdom.

this image was taken today leaving one of these camps after having had the privilege of being welcomed into several homes and hearing the stories of men who had made the trek from syria to relative safety in jordan. more photos and stories in the days and weeks to come.
