Disabled refugee inventor builds electric bike

Three years ago Safwan Harb fled the violence in Syria with two family members.

They all have disabilities and have struggled to get around on the unpaved roads of Jordan's Zaatari refugee camp. But Mr Harb came up with a solution - an electric bicycle made from spare parts he found.\n\nIt can be used by people with disabilities to have more independence. About 80,000 people are estimated to live in the Zaatari refugee camp.\n\n(Source: BBC News YouTube channel)
