  • Title:  Family at refugee camp
  • Description:  Holding Khatidja Al Dayat (7, right) and her older sister Ibtisam Al Dayat (9, left), Munaukh Meteb Al Dayat (58), their father, sit in their caravan at Za’atari Refugee Camp for Syrian Refugees in Mafraq Governorate, about 50km North of Amman, the capital of Jordan. Both Khatidja and Ibtisam attend a UNICEF supported school in Za'atari camp. Lack of participation from Khatidja has been a concern for her teachers. They wanted to find out if there is anything they could do to help. Through Ibtisam, they reached the family to ensure children are not suffering from any additional trauma and if there is anything they could do to help. To avoid violence, Khatidja's family fled to Jordan from a village called Al Sahwa in Daraa region near Jordanian border in Syria. Ibtisam had a lot more to share that explains some reasons for her sister Khatidja’s quietness and lack of participation. She said that Khatidja is usually shy in new places and with strangers. Narrating her family’s story, she said, “We left because of war. Our village was close to a military base so there was intense fighting in our area. We used to hear gunshots, we even saw missile being fired. It was very dangerous. Many people got injured and many died.” “We are three sisters and three brothers. We had a very big house, lots of toys and things to play with. My father used to work as a moneychanger. We are not very happy here. It is very dirty here and because of so much dust, it’s hard to keep things clean. I help my mother clean, collect water, wash clothes and dirty dishes as well as cook. I also help Khatidja do her homework.” “We miss rice from Syria. It was very tasty.” Khatidja’s father Munaukh Meteb Al Dayat (58) has two wives. He has twelve children from his first wife and six with his second wife, who is also mother of Khatidja and Ibtisam. The first wife and her children lived in comparatively safer neighbourhood and decided not come to Jordan. Commenting on his life
