Mohammed al Gazawi, 36 years old, (not in the picture) has been living in the refugee camp for some time but now he can't stand it any longer. His four children are helping to pack a pickup before leaving to try his luck in the Jordanian capital of Amman. Life in the camp drags him down he explains: 'Everything here is so dirty. The air is dirty. The tents, the food, the ground is dirty. Look around you. The people living here are dirty'. Approximately two million people have fled the conflict in Syria. At least 130,000 of them live in Zaatari Refugee Camp, although it was designed to house 60,000, and a further 2,000 people arrive each day.
