Outbreak of scabies at Syrian refugee camps in Jordan

Home / Humanitarian Aid / Outbreak of scabies at Syrian refugee camps in Jordan

It seems this last weekend and up today we have had a lot of things going on in Jordan with the Syrian Refugees.

On Saturday I received a message that we had an epidemic starting in the Al-Hussein camp and in Zaatari camps of scabies. Today, I received a message from the Ministry of Health in Jordan that we have more cases about 300 now and also 8 cases of HIV. With the tight living quarters and also the damp space and unclean facilities this will spread like wild fire in the area of the camps. On top of all this the medication that is needed is not available in Jordan, or shall I say the only amount that we were able to find, thru my good friend Gerri Haynes and thru her pharmacists here for 350 tablets, which we were able to purchase. The cream is available but only in small supplies in Madaba which we found thru another pharmacy and he was able to get 150 tubes that is all they had in the whole country.

These are the medications for this alert if you know of anyone that could help us with this please contact us ASAP
