A ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) has distributed winterised emergency shelter in Jordan along the Syrian border providing a rest area for newly arriving Syrian refugee families. 

With over 250,000 Syrians displaced in Jordan, the SRT deployed to the Middle Eastern country to find the most suitable avenune to distribute ShelterBox tents that would benefit the refugees the most. 

Another SRT is in Lebanon carrying out needs assessments in the isolated areas of the Bekaa Valley.
