The C19 Prisons Taskforce are piloting an Appeals Programme to support a number of jurisdictions through the provision of direct aid and supplies with the support of NGOs, companies and other bodies.
Through an assessment of needs and dialogue with a number of jurisdictions it is apparent that basic prison operations, the safety of staff and the welfare of inmates are massively impacted as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Items such as hygiene products, medical equipment, e.g. thermal scanners/thermometers, food supplies, computers/software are desperately needed. Even basic food supplies are in short supply with inmates no longer able to rely on visits to obtain certain provisions.
This appeal asks for the assistance of anyone who can help in the procurement, provision or delivery of such supplies. Contact Ed Wozniak firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
As the Appeals Programme develops we will provide updated information here.
