In December 2014, a team from the University of British Columbia’s International Reporting Program visited Jordan to report on the mental health situation of the more than 600,000 Syrian refugees living in the country.

I was part of that team. We spent ten days in Amman -with a short visit to Irbid- reporting on the work of Bright Future for Mental Health, an organization founded by a Syrian psychiatrist who decided to provide services to his fellow countrymen and women after fleeing the country. The organization pays special attention to the mental well-being of children, who constitute more than half of the refugee population in Jordan.

The result of that reporting trip was published on The New York Times.

I also wanted to share some of the photos I took at Za’atari Refugee Camp, the second largest in the world with a population of 80,000 men, women, and children.
