The Syrian conflict has impacted Jordan economically and politically.
Last week, an average of 1,500 Syrian refugees crossed into Jordan every day. There are now over 150,000 Syrian refugees in the country.
With the support of the international community - the UNHCR in particular - Jordan has recently stepped up its response and opened a refugee camp near the Syrian border.
Beyond its traditional action in places of detention, the ICRC in Jordan functions as a support to our Syria operation.
