JO3 RL Compredio, ZCRC-BJMP spokesperson, said around 60 inmates have been identified by the screening personnel to qualify for the program.

He also BJMP personnel had donated some items like old but still usable shoes, clothes and others intended for the inmates’ children.

The screening of inmates was based on means of income or on/off worker for selection to the program. Around 60 inmates have qualified for the program.

The program is being handled by the ZCRC Inmate Welfare Development (IWD) Desk and the Civil Relation Service (CRS).

The target of distribution of the school supplies will be given before the opening of classes in June. –Joey Bautista
