The region’s largest camp for Syrian refugees arranges trucks and houses. It slowly becomes city. The camp, which is overseen jointly by the government of Jordan and the United Nations refugee agency, covers two square miles, with 27,101 shelters and 1,724 infrastructure or support buildings. It has a population of 122,017, it’s just over a year old, and almost every resident is there because they fled a brutal civil war. Humanitarian workers struggle to provide education for the 60,000 children under 18, shelter, electricity, water and health care.
