AdvocAid donates to female prisoners


May 25, 2015 By Michael Bockarie

AdvocAid, a non-governmental organization supporting justice, education, and re-integration for women and their children in detention, last week donated cosmetics, clothing and foodstuff to female prisoners at the Port Loko prison.

The items include bathing soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, body cream, slippers, sanitary pads, cloths, underwear, gari and sugar.

Presenting the items on behalf of AdvocAid, social worker Sia Fatmata Deen, said their desire was to see the inmates live like normal human beings, notwithstanding their status as detainees. She encouraged them to ask for anything that they were in need of, adding that as long as it did not go against prison rules AdvocAid would help them secure it.

The inmates, Adama Suma, Marie Gbla, Fanta Barie, and Isatu Gbla, who are serving their various sentences, after being convicted by the court, expressed appreciation for the kind gesture. They also requested for bed nets, touch lights, vitamins and nutritious food.

Manager in charge of the Prison, Superintendent Rudolpha George, thanked AdvocAid, on behalf of officers at the prison, for the kind gesture.  He prayed they would secure more funds to continue their work. He also requested support for male prisoners, nothing that women can live without men.
