The forgotten and neglected camp of Rukban, where suffering is manifested in all its forms

إحدى خيم نازحي تدمر في مخيم الركبان على الحدود الأردنية السورية

The Rukban camp lies along the demilitarized berm between Jordan and Syria and suffers the worst conditions of living, health and education since the beginning of the Syrian revolution.


There are about 100,000 people living in the camp. In the absence of humanitarian organizations, there is no accurate statistics for the number of residents of the camp who came mainly from the city of Palmyra and the Syrian desert.


As a result of conflicts between the Assad regime and IS, thousands of civilians displaced to Rukban camp in order to escape the bombing and battles between the two parties . The battles which aimed at displacing the people of these areas.


Due to the absence of a real partner and attempts by some to exploit and benefit from the issue of refugees, the ability of international organizations to intervene and help is so limited.


Jordan, for security reasons, is very cautious to open direct crossings to deliver aid in the camp, the thing that increased the tragic situation of the civilians.


We call upon the United Nations and all humanitarian organizations working in the region to find a way to alleviate the suffering of displaced people living in the camp and to provide food, health and education support.
