Syrian Refugee Camp Soap Opera - Jordan
Description: The back of one caravan at Za'atari refugee camp in Jordan has become the unlikely set for a comedy series made by a group of talented refugees who want to send a message to their fellow refugees and to the world that life at the camp goes on and that time and limited resources can be used wisely for sending an important message about global social issues. Ahmed Hareb and his friends are about to start filming on their soap opera, entitled Ziko & Shreko. It offers a humourous take on serious issues affecting Syrian refugees, including child labour and early marriage. They often film at night due to the lack of electricity in the camp during the day, when they hold rehearsals instead.

Jordanie : Trop Jeune Pour Etre La Mariée
Description: Rencontrez Omaima, ardente défenseure contre le mariage précoce parmi les réfugiés syriens. Au camp de réfugiés de Zaatari en Jordanie, cette réfugiée syrienne âgée de 15 ans œuvre inlassablement en tant que bénévole auprès des communautés, en organisant des ateliers où à travers le dessin et le théâtre. Elle éduque les jeunes réfugiés et leurs parents sur les risques du mariage précoce. Elle-même a hâte de se marier un jour. « Mais seulement quand je le déciderai, après avoir terminé mes études à l'université. Et j’espère que, quand je me marierai, je ne vivrai plus à Zaatari. » Pour en savoir plus sur Omaima et notre travail pour empêcher le mariage précoce (en anglais) : http://tracks.unhcr.org/2016/04/too-young-to-be-a-bride/ Dans la Syrie d’avant-guerre, environ 13% de tous les mariages comptaient l’un des mariés en-dessous de l'âge de 18 ans. Parmi les réfugiés syriens vivant en Jordanie, ce taux est passé à 32% au premier trimestre 2014. Nous travaillons en collaboration avec le juge de la charia locale basé au camp de Zaatari. Nous assurons une sensibilisation contre le mariage précoce à toutes les personnes ayant l'intention de se marier avant l’âge de 18 ans. Ce soutien est destiné à sensibiliser sur les risques du mariage précoce, y compris les dangers pour la santé des grossesses précoces. S'il n'y a aucune preuve que l'enfant est âgé de moins de 15 ans ou que le mariage est forcé, nous offrons un soutien élargi aux familles sur le plan légal et médical ainsi que sur les conséquences psychologiques, en collaboration avec l'Unité gouvernementale de protection de la famille, qui cherche à empêcher les mariages précoces. .
