Short description:
Alpha Care Senegal offers basic needs to prison inmates. Many prisoners experience extreme isolation as well as malnutrition - with inadequate food, no clean water and no proper space to sleep in overcrowded cells. Serious medical conditions such as Diarrhea and malaria regularly go untreated.
Alpha Care Senegal looks after the health and well-being of thousands of inmates by providing essential services such as: vitamins and essential foodstuffs, emergency medical care, water filters, postage-paid envelopes to keep in touch with home, books and magazines, clothes and shoes, mattresses.
Alpha Care also helps with rehabilitation for ex-prisoners such as skill-acquisition in tailoring, carpentry and mechanics.
Alpha Care also runs a regular campaign informing the public about drug awareness and the effect of crime in Senegalese society.
