Jordanian Minister of Interior, Salameh Hammad met on Sunday, September 15, 2019, with UNICEF Jordan's Representative, Tanya Chapuisat.

"Children are considered the cornerstone for building societies and must be taken care of in all respects to be able to serve their community in the future," Hammad said, noting that the government is exerting its best to meet their needs in various educational, health and social fields.

Hammad noted to Jordan's humane role in hosting refugees and providing them with services, most notably health, and educational services, despite the difficult economic circumstances in Jordan.

He also stressed the need for the international community and donor countries to shoulder their responsibilities towards Jordan and help it through establishing productive projects, especially in refugee-hosting communities.

For her part, Chapuisat expressed UNICEF's keenness to help countries in creating a proper educational and social environment for children, noting that the UN organization considers Jordan as one of the most prominent countries in supporting children's rights and providing all basic requirements for refugees and their children.
