The UAE will open a camp for Syrian refugees in Rabaa al-Sarhan in Jordan's al-Mafraq province, Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, chairman of the UAE Red Crescent, told al-Ittihad daily Tuesday (September 4th).
"The condition of Syrian refugees in Jordan is difficult and will be even more difficult," Sheikh Hamdan said. "We have to secure all the requirements of a decent living for them as soon as possible and to provide all the treatment, medical and relief services to them, especially to women and children."
The camp will be built in four phases. The first will accommodate 2,700 refugees and will be managed by UAE administrators in partnership with Jordan's Red Crescent agency.
