Muslim Prison Board MPB is planning to reach out to prisons following an escalation of covid 19 cases.

Speaking in an interview with Radio Islam, MPB executive director Abbas Panjwani says this is the time that people and organizations should reach out to prisoners as they are more vulnerable.

This development comes days after Chichiri prison recorded over 50 cases of the pandemic following a massive test conducted at the facility.

Panjuwani says “our organization remains committed to ensuring that prisoners are receiving equipment to protect themselves and others from the virus.”

He has disclosed that they are currently holding talks regarding the donation to Chichiri and other prisons which have recorded covid 19 cases.
