Preventing COVID-19 in Correctional Institutions

Preventing COVID-19 in Correctional Institutions

Faraja Foundation in partnership with Bidco Africa Ltd. on 3rd April 2o2o launched a campaign seeking for public support to maintain the high sanitation standards in the prison facilities by donating 350 boxes of bar soaps, diapers and 236 bales of tissue papers to Magereza House. The Commissioner General of Prisons Mr. Wycliffe Ogallo received the donations on behalf of the Service from the Chairman Faraja Foundation, CPA David Bett. Also present was the CEO Faraja Foundation, Ms. Jane Kuria, HSC, DCGP Benjamin Njoga and other senior prison officers. With the government shutting down entry and visitations to the prison facilities by citizens in response to the Corona Virus Pandemic, the inmates, including mothers with children, are faced with difficulties in accessing basic needs that were previously brought by their kin. We are therefore launching this campaign and urging all Kenyans of Goodwill to share their kindness with those behind bars by donating commodities that will improve sanitation and thus help in curbing the risk of infection of the #covid19 virus.
