The iftar included play performance by a group of inmates and religious spots.
Colonel Ayman Alawneh, the head of Jwaideh Correctional and Rehabilitation Centre, gave a speech before the attendees on the importance of focusing on the reform programs and the humanization of correctional work.

He added that a school was also established and courses of literacy and Quran Tajweed and memorization were organized, in addition to courses in computer and English language.
