In the camp there are more and more people arriving to find safety from the War within Syria, due to their homes being bombed and losing family members. The majority in the 'camp are children which is around 60%', the camp doctor said. There are a lot of different diseases rife in the camp due to bad hygiene and facilities, such as the families living in the tents burn plastic to keep warm which is toxic, creating problems with the lungs. On top of this PTSD is common with many people and children in the camp especially suffer with this due to the tragic events unfolding in front of their eyes. The international aid is sparse going into the camp and the organisations who are there can not cope with the big influx of IDPs.
