Good News Cambodia (5) New Building for Female Prisoners with Children.

The stuffed-to-overflowing Prey Sar Correctional Centre 2 prison now has two new buildings designed to segregate female prisoners, locked up with their children, from the general population.

Such buildings should go a long way to stopping incarcerated children from contracting diseases such as tuberculosis, which is endemic in Cambodian jails.

Outside of the new cell-blocks is a playground for these captive kids.

Mothers and their children should move into the new facility on Monday.

However, this being Cambodia, there are concerns that the shiny new cells may become home for wealthy convicts who will simply bribe prison officials and and move in. Not this time, one hopes.

The buildings were paid for by Medicins San Frontieres
