The comptroller of the Federal Penitentiary Service (SPF), María Laura Garrigós, described on Tuesday as “a pride” that this body is part of the process of preparing the crib kits that detainees will manufacture within the framework of the 1000 Days Plan for pregnant women and boys and girls up to three years old.
“For the Federal Penitentiary Service, being able to collaborate in the manufacture of the cribs is a source of pride and satisfaction; the people who are going to work in the production, whether from the bassinet, textiles and the production of mattresses, are very enthusiastic and they feel that they are doing something important for the families that are going to receive them,” he declared in a dialogue with Télam Radio.
Likewise, Garrigós stressed that this type of work not only complies with the SPF regulations to provide employment, but also aims to expand to other provinces.
“The service thus fulfills its task of giving work to people deprived of liberty, not only in the units where we are going to start making these bassinets, but also in other units in the provinces where we will soon start manufacturing,” he added.
The program inspired by the Qunita Plan contemplates the distribution of the first 14,000 crib kits for babies up to 6 months, made by people deprived of liberty, according to official sources.
In the six months that the national plan launched in 2015 worked, 74,408 kits were distributed to 289 maternity hospitals throughout the country, of which 43,600 (60% of the total distributed) were delivered to families.
