Amidst this setting, the Jordan Health Aid Society
provides comprehensive reproductive and maternal health care to the camp’s residents. This well-respected Jordanian NGO operates the UNFPA-funded Women and Girls Comprehensive Center, the sole maternity clinic in Za’atari Camp. A preliminary survey of JHAS’ clients in this clinic indicated that while 93.2% of respondents are literate in Arabic, only 20.2% of respondents were aware of a location where they and their families could access reading resources in the camp. By developing a safe space to read and learn in the JHAS clinic, we will be able to mitigate this "book desert" and provide reading services to young women and their children while they are waiting to be seen by JHAS’ midwives and physicians.
