The Refugee Camp Our Desert Home


Anita Rani, Javid Abdelmoneim and Ben Timberlake immerse themselves in the life of Zaatari, a unique desert city in Jordan. Zaatari is no ordinary city - it is a refugee camp and home to some 80,000 Syrians who have fled the bombs and bullets of Syria's civil war and what was once a temporary camp has now become a city the size of Bath. Originally just a few hundred tents, it now has 24,000 homes with a busy shopping street (known locally as the Champs-Elysees), hospitals and schools, and like every other city on earth, Zaatari has births, deaths, marriages and everything in between.
