Amman: A fully serviced joint Emirati-Jordanian camp welcomed yesterday the first batch of Syrian refugees.

Majed bin Sulaiman, head of the UAE relief team, said the group were transported to the UAE Red Crescent sponsored 'Meraijeb Al Fahoud" camp in coordination with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

The camp is located 25 kilometres away from Zarqa Free Zone on the highway to Saudi Arabia.

He said each family was housed in a fully serviced caravan after they were registered, screened and issued a magnetic card.

He added the camp is managed by the UAE Red Crescent volunteers through most advanced electronic and surveillance systems to ensure safety of refugees.

Refugees, he said, will receive food, educational, housing, health and recreational facilities as well psychological support. They will also get job opportunities. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
