New images from inside the second largest refugee camp on Earth paints a vivid picture of everyday life for millions of Syrian refugees.

More than two million refugees have now fled the violence in Syria, the vast majority of them seeking refuge in neighbouring countries.

The Zaatari camp in Jordan has expanded rapidly in the last year and is now one of the country's largest cities.

The UN World Food Programme (WFP) is feeding those living in Zaatari refugee camp, and has captured these images.

WFP has introduced a voucher food system that allows refugees to buy supplies from an expanding range of shops in the camp.

A similar system is being used in Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon and Turkey and has been credited with injecting more than $153 million (£96m) into the local economies of these host countries.

UmShadi Bardan, seen above, fled to the camp from Dera'a in Syria after her house was burnt down.

She says the voucher system enables her to buy fresh products like yoghurt,cheese, sardines and tuna to supplement the food rations of grains and canned food.

Roughly three-quarters of the inhabitants of Zaatari are women and children, meaning that the provision of education and activities is a high priority.

Many of the children who arrive at the camp are traumatised by living in a war zone and witnessing the death of relatives.

They are given fig roll biscuits at school to encourage attendance.
