Overview

The health of inmates is not the best as most of them have wounds which go for months without any treatment, some have diabetes, High Blood Pressure, constant mentral pains, Sugar Sugar and lots more which they obtained it only in the Prison. The resources available are not enough to cater of the 1,400 inmates as the Prison was built for only 300 inmates. The condition in the prison is not the best health wise and the project was aimed at educating and ameliorating this cases. It obvious that, the carrying capacity of the prison is over loaded and the inmates are really not in the best condition health wise.
