A boy carries a mattress as Syrian refugees go about their daily business in the Za'atari refugee camp on January 29, 2013 in Mafrq, Jordan. Record numbers of refugees are fleeing the violence and bombings in Syria to cross the borders to safety in northern Jordan and overwhelming the Za'atari camp. The Jordanian government are appealing for help with the influx of refugees as they struggle to cope with the sheer numbers arriving in the country.
