SHIMO LA TEWA WOMEN PRISON CHILDREN BIRTHDAY CAKE
SHIMO LA TEWA WOMEN PRISON CHILDREN BIRTHDAY CAKE: Lets show love to all not only our families. (1/3)

We had an opportunity to visit women and their children at  shimo la tewa maximum prison. The prison situated at shanzu along malindi road  in Mombasa county Kenya. It is the second largest prison in Kenya and Helping Hands organization has been in a mission to empower women and youth in the community. Since the outbreak of covid19 pandemic, the prisoners have not been able to be visited by guests, friends and relatives and these has affected emotionally and deserted. Until our visit, Majority broke in tears as an indication that they had undergone mental torture. lets all remember our sisters and there children in prison. This are very strong women with leadership values ,good morals, talented as much as they are unable to live a normal life.

They all need to be loved and cared for to avoid cases of suicide, frustrations and hanger. We have old aged women and youths who need counseling ,basic items for there daily needs, more so their children, the infant who have no idea of the situation ,support them in anyway. walk in prison and you will brake down in tears, they feel isolated and forgotten, unwanted and dirty,

As helping hands organization we have decided to come with a program of its own that will support the women and children in the prison. We can not walk on this journey alone, any interested party can join us, together we can work as a team.

Therefore, helping hands organization takes this opportunity to sensitize the public at large that we need to remember the vulnerable community more so prisoners, street children and orphanages. In addition to this, these part of the society are in need of items such as pampers, noodles, sanitary towels, panties, bra's, tissue papers, Weetabix, shoes, sandals, clothes for children and detergents. We therefore appeal to individuals, institutions ( companies) and non governmental organizations to offer their utmost support to the aforementioned vulnerable community. In this regard, You can donate the above items through helping hands organization.

Hello sis Judith. Thank you for sharing! Looking at the pretty little babes (noo-noos) so cute - I just wan to hold them! Prison life is a tough life. My parents did prison ministries and we were exposed to this. The life-changing events that often occurred. It's sad to be locked up and yes, often individuals feel excluded from society, and the global pandemic just makes it so much worse for them. There are indeed lots and lots of talent inside the prison walls. Please continue to encourage them to pursue their dreams and to use and offer their talents. We are indeed one another's keepers! They are not forgotten. Thank you for your work.

Much love to you.

Hello Judith,
It's lovely to see this image of hope and sharing special family times in such a place of desolation as a Kenyan prison. Thank you for going out to encourage these women and children, to give them value, and help them know that they are worthy. It is a wonderful thing that you and your team and partners did. I can imagine that the needs are great and the work enormous in the various community initiatives that your organisation is commited to. So well done for pressing on, without feeeling intimidated, or that you don't have everything needed for the job. That's the warrior spirit girl. Keep shining, and may God resource all your endeavours.
kwa heshima ,
Nini
