Dh2.95 million in donations helps Dubai prisoners reform
Of this, Dh1.47 million helped inmates who had completed their prison terms return home.
Charities and philanthropists have donated generously to assist prisoners in Dubai correctional facilities. About 3,922 inmates have benefitted from the Dh2.95 million donated by various charity groups since January 2020.
Of this, Dh1.47 million helped inmates who had completed their prison terms return home. "Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Correctional and Punitive Establishments redirected its efforts to provide tickets for inmates who have served their sentences and wished to return to their home countries to be with their families," said Lt. Habib Husain Al Zarouni, head of Humanitarian Care Department.
Donations are typically used to organise reformation programmes and craftsmanship workshops for inmates; provide medical devices, and cover housing fees and school tuitions for their families.
The donations grant inmates "a chance to reform and start afresh", said Brigadier Ali Mohammed Al Shamali, director of the General Department of Correctional and Punitive Establishments, Dubai Police. "The annual programmes, aid and initiatives of the department reflect the police's concept of prisons as a place of reformation rather than punishment."
