Images from Gaza Refugee Camp

Today I visited the Gaza Refugee camp near the city of Jerash in the north of Jordan, and i captured a couple of pictures that i really wanted to post. The refugee camp is home to over 30,000 Palestinian refugees, and the poverty there is beyond what i've seen in any other camp i've visited. There is no underground sewage system in place, instead there are open sewage canals all around the camp. I wish i had more time to shoot but I think this isn't going to be my last visit.
