First Aid course in Zaatari

First Aid course in Zaatari

The Zaatari refugee camp is inhabited by nearly 80,000 Syrians. A fifth of them are children below the age of 5 years. The biggest problem is a shortage of power supply, water and hygiene products. Inhabitants of the Zaatari camp are living in containers trying to create a substitute for home and a safe shelter. The buildings, however, require a lot of repairs; therefore, the Polish Medical Mission has prepared, together with the Jordan Health Aid Society International, refurbishment packages for 57 families which involved protection of the electrical wiring, replacement of sanitary facilities as well as sealing and repainting of walls and roofs.
In July 2019, a training took place, one of the many that the Polish Medical Mission and the JHAS International conducted at the Polish Training Centre in Zaatari. Several dozen people took part in a course in first aid and then received first-aid kits with basic medical necessities.
The project ‘Support for Syrian refugees in the Zaatari Refugee Camp and Jordanians in the Mafraq and Irbid Governorate in the field of social assistance and shelter’ is co-financed within the framework of the Polish development cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland.
