Bedouin Camp

When you travel through Jordan and through the huge desert areas you can see Bedouin camps in the distance.Last week I got the opportunity to visit one of the camps. I went with the SAWA women to a Bedouin camp named Badia to deliver some suger and rice.
It was hard to see the lack of everything. This families have lived like this in generations and are used to cope with the heat. They have some cattle, goats, that’s all. The men try to find work outside the camp and schools for the children are many kilometres away.
