Amman — The Social Development Ministry has prepared an official document on the procedures of alternative care in dealing with separated or unaccompanied Syrian refugee children — around 4,163 between 2013 and 2014.

The document was prepared under an official agreement between the ministry, UNICEF and UNHCR.

The number of Syrian children who arrived in Jordan between 2013 and 2014 with no accompanying adult stood at 1,339, whereas 2,824 had an adult or a relative with them, according to the ministry.

In the next few months, the cases of 400 of these children will be dealt with by specialised courts, the ministry said.
