Margherita Moscardini


The Za'atari refugee camp was set up on July 28, 2012 in a semi-desert area in the north-west of Jordan, on the border with Syria, to receive the Syrian population fleeing the war. It quickly became a city, the fourth largest in the country by extension, and the second largest refugee camp in the world, hosting a population of 150,000 residents.
