Do you know that our Malaysian prison inmates produce quite a lot of things that you see in the market these days? These products produced by them range from food to clothing and even furniture!
Now that our country is in need of PPEs (Personal Protective Equipment), the prison inmates in Penor prison, Kuantan have stepped up and took it upon themselves to produce PPEs for our frontliners!
Prison inmates worked every day to produce these suits
According to The Star, 18 prison inmates in the Penor prison have been working 9am – 5pm (Monday to Sunday) in the prison sewing workshop to produce PPEs. The sewing operations started on 27th March and till now, the inmates have been able to stably produce 20 sets of suits daily.
The completed suits will be checked by the prison staff and then they will be sent to the Pahang state secretary office to be distributed to the state health department.
Penor Prison director Datuk Abu Hasan Hussain said that in addition to that, the Prison Women Staff and Wives of Prison Staff Association (Persiap) has also pitched in and produced about 525 face shields for the frontliners!
One of the inmates, Man, 26 has said that by helping cut the PPE material, he feels that he contributed to the country in his own little way.
“I know it (Covid-19) is contagious, I am also proud to be able to help even in prison. My contribution is not great, but I hope it can help protect struggling medical personnel.”
This is so inspiring! Since we’re all going into the second phase of the MCO soon, we should all continue to stay at home and to keep ourselves hygienic so that we can help to break the chain!
