Amman, the capital, is Jordan's largest city. It is also the most diverse: the Amman metro area is home to Palestinian, Iraqi, Syrian, Sudanese, Somali, and Jordanian families.
Originally a military hub and
a destination for Palestinian refugees, Zarqa is Jordan's second-largest city and home to a growing number of Syrian and Iraqi urban refugees. Because of its distance from Amman, refugees in Zarqa have difficulty accessing NGO services.
