British Prime Minister David Cameron arrived in Jordan on Monday for a visit to Za’atari camp for Syrian refugees accompanied by Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Joudeh.

During his time in the camp, the PM visited one of Save the Children’s Youth Multi-Activity Centers, joining two of the classes that were taking place there.

The PM engaged with the young students and asked them about their life in the camp, their aspirations and ambitions.

The young Syrians expressed their hope to return back home to Syria, where they would like to grow up to become teachers, lawyers and football players. 

Cameron told the class: “We will go on supporting you for as long as you need to be here. But we hope you will be able to go home.”

During his visit, Cameron stressed on the need for other countries to provide monetary aid to the countries hosting the largest numbers of people displaced by Syria’s civil war, now in its fifth year.
