STATE TIMES NEWS KATHUA: At this time when the world is hit by pandemic causing widespread crisis, the Kathua District Jail authorities with an earnest resolve to help district administration, have supplied over 7000 face masks made by the jail inmates to meet the demand of protective gear for frontline Covid warriors. Jail Superintendent, Mushtaq Ahmed Malla, said the Kathua District Jail administration under its ‘PARWAH’ (Prison Activities for Reformation Welfare and Health) initiative has undertaken several welfare measures to imbibe the spirit of care and belonging among the inmates as well as staff of the jail. While throwing light on the mask making initiative, the Jail Superintendent informed that lack of resources, like insufficient number of sewing machines and most importantly the absence of raw material for making masks, did not stop the staff and inmates from their resolve to contribute their bit in this time of crisis. “The jail staff arranged sewing machines from their homes which show their spirit and enthusiasm for the cause,” Malla added. Starting with the speed of making 30-40 masks per day the team is now touching whopping 400 masks per day. The cost of each reusable mask is Rs 15 which is quite less than the available variants in the market, informed superintendent. Listing other provisions envisaged under PARWAH programme, he said the education as well as vocational training is being imparted to inmates within jail premises through IGNOU centre where 1 inmate successfully passed MA tourism, 34 passed BBP, 1 passed certificate course whereas 13 inmates are currently pursuing BA, 2 PG Diploma and 4 certificate course.
