JAIPUR, RAJASTHAN: Women prisoners are making major contributions with their sewing skills in the fight against novel Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Women belonging to all age groups made thousands of face masks, with the help of either sewing machines or by using needle and thread.
Jail officials said that women prisoners want to change society's perception about them, as they don't want to be recognised just as criminals, but as Coronawarriors.
Jaipur women prisoners made over 70,000 masks of the highest quality.
Monica Agrawal, SP of Jaipur Mahila Jail, said that women are experts in stitching and their facemasks are earning praises from different departments.
Their masks are sent to the jail shop named 'Ashayen' and IB, CBI, PHQ, RAC, and many NGOs are buying them from the shop.
She added that one mask cost Rs 8 and this amount is being sent to our accounts department.
