The British heir apparent, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall made a visit to a refugee camp in Jordan today.

They were welcomed by staff on their visit to the United Nations King Abdullah Refugee Camp which is home to approximately 1000 people who have left the two-year conflict in Syria.

Charles said that he was struck by the generosity of the charitable organisations and the Jordanian people. He said, “They’ve managed to cope with and deal with all these hundreds of thousands of refugees and it’s very nearly the second anniversary” […] “The generosity is extraordinary but it’s putting more and more strain on food and hospitals so clearly the Jordanians need more assistance and help to be able to cope with this immense challenge”.
