AMMAN — Prime Minister Omar Razzaz on Sunday visited an Amman orphanage, home to boys between the ages of 10 and 15.
 
The premier, accompanied by Minister of Social Development Basma Ishaqat, checked on the activities and services provided at the orphanage, which include providing food, clothing, healthcare, education and training, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
 
Ishaqat gave a presentation on the efforts of the Social Development Ministry that aim to provide the children with various forms of protection and care, focusing on their social, educational, intellectual, psychological and cultural well-being and growth.
 
Razzaz called on the private sector and civil society institutions to unite in an effort to provide orphan children with the needed services throughout different stages of their education, “so they can feel that their community stands behind them”.
 
He pointed out that it is our duty as both the government and the community, during the holy month, to visit and communicate with the groups who need support and care, adding that his visit intended “to make sure that we as a government are playing our role in caring for these children”.
 
Razzaz expressed his satisfaction with the quality of services provided at the orphanage, assuring that that the government will follow through with the implementation of its needs and demands, which include revamping the rooftop into an area for activities and upgrading the computers.
