Day 5 of why YOU should support MOTO!
People serving prison sentences in Malawi face sub-standard living conditions. Many have been sentenced for short sentences, but remain detained for months or even years longer than necessary. Many are sentenced for minor crimes, or placed in prison due to mental illness. Inmates face overcrowding, poor nutrition, spread of communicable disease, limited access to healthcare, and inadequate rehabilitation support. For inmates living with illness or disability, a short prison sentence can sometimes mean a death sentence. Please see this enlightening Guardian article.
Through it's local partner, the Umunthu Foundation, MOTO hopes to be one of the few organisations to work with an occupational therapy perspective with inmates in Malawi. This is pioneering work, that could make significant difference to the lives of inmates, and contribute to advocacy for the human rights of those sentenced in Malawi. YOU could help this initiative become a reality by donating now.
