Za'atari camp in northern Jordan, home to some 55,000 Syrian refugees half of whom are children, is battered by unusually heavy rains, flooding, snow and sub-zero temperatures.

The United Nations children's fund (UNICEF) is responding to the rising needs of the children in the camp.

Juliette Touma, the Agency's Communications and Media Specialist in Jordan tells Reem Abaza that UNICEF is working around the clock moving the children to safer ground and making sure that they are warm and dry.
