A visit to the Prison.

Every week we visit the prisons, we visit the mothers who are in jail and who have little children with them. Those children are growing up in the prison, they do not have always a lot of food, and we got and see them every week.
We bring them porridge flour, sugar and soap. Sometimes we give some little toys, we provided pots to cook the porridge and we help sometimes with medicines. This week we got a request from the Prison officer if we could please help the mothers with a mosquito net, a basin and a jerrycan. Elias and Esther, two of our staff, are mostly the people who go every week, they organised it and together we went to give them. At the moment there were 8 mothers with small children. The mothers were very happy with the gift we brought, the children liked the biscuits the most. 
At the back, left Esther is sitting(purple shirt).  
At the end the ladies gave us a special clap as a thank you!!
