The lockdown and restriction of access to Correctional Facilities is bringing untold hardship to children in the centres. Parents who bring provisions to the centres to supplement staple food provided by Government and NGOs that provide toiletries have stopped coming.
In view of the absence of support from any quarters, PRAI has been raising funds and providing relief materials like food stuffs, beverages and toiletries to the centres.
We have provided support for the following centres:
1. Special Correctional Centre for Boys, Oregun, Lagos State.
2 Special Correctional Centre for Girls, Idi-Araba, Lagos State.
3. Borstal Institution, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
4. Borstal Institution, Ilorin Kwara State.
In the next few days we shall be supporting:
1. Borstal Institution, Kaduna, Kaduna State
2. Correctional Centre for Girls, Idi-Araba, Lagos State.
3. Correctional Centre for Boys, Yaba, Lagos.
We hope to sustain the intervention till the end of the pandemic subject to the availability of funds.
