Syrian refugee children’s rehabilitation center in Amman, Jordan

More than half of the 3.3-million people displaced by Syria’s civil war are children. In Jordan alone, more than 300,000 children are starting new lives with limited access to education, health, and attention to their psychological well-being. The focus of international donors is on immediate and tangible needs such as shelter, food and basic health care. But the psychological harm can also have catastrophic consequences. A handful of organizations are doing what they can to keep an entire generation from being wasted. I visited with a few Syrian refugee children living in Amman to see how the Malki-Salaam Children’s Center have been able to help them recover from their trauma.

Thanks to Dr. Shafik and his colleagues for graciously opening the doors to me and allowing me to spend a day with him and the children.
