Syrian Refugee Crisis: Jordan Calls For NGO Assistance


Minister of Water and Irrigation, Ali Ghezawi, said Jordan bears great burdens due to the Syrian refugees crisis that raised the demand on water, especially in the north regions, and the Kingdom as a whole. He made his remarks in a meeting with the German Ambassador to Jordan, Birgitta Maria Siefker-Eberle, the UNICEF Representative, Robert Jenkins, and Jordanian officials to initiate the implementation of two water pipelines and sewerage in the Al-Zaatari refugee camp, to protect the groundwater and the environment in the region.
