How Syrian children learn to live inside a refugee camp

Just over the border from Syria, in Jordan, the Zaatari camp houses more than 10,000 refugees.
Life can be difficult in the desert camp so a project has been started to give children a safe place to play with each other.
It is also hoped the scheme will help rehabilitate those who have witnessed horrific scenes during the conflict in Syria.
