In pictures - Syrian refugees in Jordan

Jordan has seen an increasing number of refugees fleeing violence in Syria. The Jordan National Red Crescent Society is active in health care, shelter and livelihoods support and works in concert with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and other Movement partners such as the Spanish Red Cross to assess needs and provide immediate and long-term relief.
