Today, we had gate pick up for four women from Luzira Prison to the Safe Home; Precious, Justine, Alice and Ritah. Rose and Ritah are both mothers that gave birth from prison. Justine and Alice needed help to reach their homes which are within Kampala and we drove them to their homes. They were able to reunite with their families that they were unable to contact while they were still in prison.
Precious, was originally from mukono; had not contacted her brother with whom she was staying before going to prison and was unsure he was still at the same address. She was unable to reach him on phone and was helped with transport to travel to her village in kabale after the COVID restriction was lifted off public transport moving to the district.
Ritah is still at the home, we were able to go to the place she was renting to ascertain if she could still stay there with her two months old baby. The house had however been rented out and she awaits for travel restrictions to be lifted in Kyotera, her home town to be able to transition from the home to be with her sister as she awaits for her husband who is still serving jail term.
