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.
