AMMAN — The UNHCR received the last batch of prefabricated trailers donated by Oman to the Zaatari Refugee Camp on Monday.

UNHCR Liaison Officer Ali Bibi said the 51 trailers received this week were the final consignment of 3,500 trailers donated by the sultanate.

Bibi voiced appreciation of Oman’s efforts to meet the needs of the refugees, adding that more support is needed to replace the camp’s tents with trailers, as there are more than 3,000 refugee families still living in tents.

He called on the international community to support the UNCHR in serving refugees and assist Jordan in hosting them, noting that 19,000 trailers have been received since the opening of the camp.
