Zaatari is home to 78,804 refugees, nearly 20% are under five years old. Zaatari Camp, close to Jordan’s northern border with Syria has become emblematic of the displacement of Syrians across the Middle East following its establishment in 2012. In that time, the camp’s evolution, from a small collection of tents into an urban settlement of some 80,000 persons reflects both the needs and aspirations of the camp’s residents and a transition to a more predictable, cost effective and participatory platform for the delivery of assistance.
36,883 refugees are currently in the camp, from a total of 41,505 persons of concern registered.
59.02% are children, including 285 unaccompanied minors.
There are 1,272 recorded disabilities in the camp; 36.67% of these are within children.

Working with Partners
In 2017, IOM continued to respond to the needs of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and affected communities across Syria through its operations from Damascus, Gaziantep and Amman. Over the course of the year, IOM provided assistance – in the form of Non-Food Items (NFIs), Shelter, Logistics, Coordination, Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCM), Early Recovery and Livelihoods, Protection and Health - to over 800,000 individuals in Syria.
• In Syria, UNICEF has reached 305,600 people in 140 hard-to-reach locations with life-saving interventions and critical services and participated in an ICRC/UN Inter-Agency convoy to the besieged location in East Ghouta in February delivering supplies for about 9,000 people, and carrying-out rapid multi-sectoral needs assessments.
Close to 400 000 men, women and children remain besieged in eastern Ghouta, where intense hostilities continue to exact a heavy toll on the civilian population. The besieged enclave has seen a dramatic upsurge in civilian casualties amid a sharp escalation in airstrikes and ground-based attacks.
