Over 30 Save the Children staff worked through the night on January 23

Over 30 Save the Children staff worked through the night on January 23
On Janurary 23, there was a large increase in the number of Syrian refugees entering Jordan, primarily due to the intensifying conflict around the border area inside Syria. Save the Children was one of the first agencies to scale up to address the needs of these refugees who have fled the conflict in Syria with very limited personal belongings.

During the course of Wednesay night, 3, 400 refugees were transported to ZaâÂÂatari camp. And the five days before that, there were 10,500 new arrivals to the camp.

Over 30 Save the Children staff worked through the night on January 23 to respond to the influx. Save the Children and WFP have distributed welcome meals, and have doubled the number of staff on the ground to address this. To alleviate the pressure and congestion on the bread distribution points, Save the Children opened a new bread distribution center and increased the distribution to be up to 15.4 metric tons a day.
