For his part, Director of Juvenile Care, Jassem Al-Kandari said, “The new Juvenile Care complex includes all accommodation and homes of the administration for boys and girls, such as social care home, the social calendar and social observation home, in addition to some yards and buildings to implement programs, activities and events for guests such as football and volleyball fields, gymnasium, swimming pool, theater hall, lecture hall, conferences, mosque and professional training workshops.”
