There are  130,000  people living in Zataari refugee camp, just across the border from Syria. They may have fled their homes, lost their livelihoods, but but life goes on.

The UN Refugee Agency offers this nice vignette about a marriage between two young people in love at a refugee camp.  They say there are about 10 wedding every week. It is heartening to see how community comes together in times of crisis to establish a sense of normalcy in difficult circumstances.
