Murijhep Al Foud Refugee Camp

08:00 Feb 18 2017 Mrajeeb al-Fhood, Zarqa, Jordan

Mrajeeb Al Fhood refugee camp (also spelled variously as Murijep al Fhoud and Marjeeb Al Fahood) is a refugee camp for refugees fleeing the Syrian Civil War. It is located in Mrajeeb Al Fhood, a stretch of arid plains some 20 kilometers east of Zarqa, Jordan. It was opened in April 2013 and is funded by the United Arab Emirates. The camp was built to cope with the influx of more Syrian refugees, as the capacity of the Zaatari refugee camp is showing to be insufficient. On 18th February, the estimated population of the camp was 7,438 refugees according to the United Nations Refugee Agency.
