FROM OUR HEAD OF MISSION IN JORDAN DAVIDE BERRUTI

At the phone Davide Berruti, Head of Mission in Jordan, describes the daily work in the refugee camp of Za'atri in northern Jordan.

"Here in Za'atri there are now 28,000 people and the flow of arrivals is constant, although some families began to leave the field for other parts of Jordan. The winter is approaching and it starts to get cold. A few days ago we started the distribution of stoves for tents, blankets and winter clothes. But, in anticipation of winter, week after week, our ability to listen to the needs of the refugee population must increase. Intersos is also working on communal kitchens. Each at the disposal of 12 families, for a total of 320 kitchens. We have already handed over the keys of the first 91 kitchens to families who will manage the use and maintenance. This work was done in close cooperation with the refugees, to understand together how to implement the stoves, how to manage them, how to coordinate the distribution of food and ensure its preservation. The problems of daily management are many, the effort to find the most appropriate solutions is constant and great is the collaboration between organizations and refugees.
Even in education we are improving. Now school classes are held every day inside tents and the construction of temporary structures will be launched in the coming months. "
