"On 16 October 2016, a Syrian refugee family in the Jordan Valley, Jordan, where they have lived in a tent for four years. From left to right Na'ama, 8, Hussein, 31, Khalf, 10, Farah, 6, and their mother Asia 27. The family fled their home in Hama when the war reached their community. "We saw people getting shot, and we lost cousins and uncles. That's why we left," said Asia, 27. It took the family two days to reach Jordan. "It was dangerous. When we reached the border we walked for an hour. We were scared," said Asia, who still has a brother in Hama who she speaks with by phone when the connection allows. The family were farmers in Syria and are now making a small living from doing field work in Jordan. But life here is hard. The tent gets incredibly hot with punishing high temperatures in summer and freezing cold and wet during the winter months. "We do it all. From putting pipes in the ground to picking tomatoes." With both working, the family makes about 12 JD a day (about $18 a day), which is not enough to cover the 60 JD a month per child in school transportation costs for their children. With the support of UNICEF through the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis, the three children are now attending a nearby Makani learning centre along with vulnerable Jordanian children from the host community. The children come here every day, except Friday, to learn to read, write, do math and better integrate the children into the community. "Jordan is good, but we always long for home," said Asia. "Everyone loves their country. The best thing about Syria before the war was the safety. We had a really good life there. We had a house. But now there is nothing left. Everything we had is gone.""
