JPS Joins Inmates & Personnel Of Bamenda Central Prison To Celebrate International Human Rights Day 2020

Posted in Protection of the Rights of Vulnerable Groups in the Archdiocese of Bamenda.

This activity took place on 10th December 2020, under the theme “Recover Better – Stand Up for Human Rights”.
In its usual way of doing things, the Service visited the various inmates in their cells, after which all stakeholder (Inmates, Prison Personnel & the JPS) assembled on the Volley Ball Pitch of the Prison where some key note speeches were made by the Coordinator of the JPS Laura Anyola Tufon and the Prison's Superintendent, Mr. Asaah Ngu Ndama Henry.
From its wide experience working in Prisons (6) within the Archdiocese of Bamenda, added to the ongoing Armed Conflict which has further aggravated the vulnerable situation of inmates, JPS handed over some food and non food items (F/NFIs) such as washing soap, sanitary towels, tins of palm oil, bags of rice etc. to the Prison Family in a bit to improve on their nutrition, hygiene and sanitation situation amidst the COVID-19 battle.
These items were distributed to the inmates, after which we had words of gratitude from the representatives of the Juveniles, Women, and the Elderly.
In another phase which took place in the Prison's Canteen, the JPS sort to know how it could be of help to the Prison in 2021. Here, the superintendent presented issues relating to the following areas;
1. Training Facilities and Workshops
2. Recreational Activities
3. Income Generating Activities
4. Health
5. Legal Assistance to Inmates
The JPS promised to critically look at these needs, and will let the Prison family know what it plans to do, once means are available.
The day ended with lunch for all stakeholders.
