Back in 2016, I went with my daughters to visit the Cavite Provincial Jail in Philippine. Without thinking too much, we just took some unwanted clothes and items for the people in the jail as well as showing the kids what would end up if you’re not behave (haha..a mother thinking!)
These people are mostly convicted from drug abuse, bribery, rapes and assault. However, they are not giving sentences by the judge. Without money to get a lawyer, you might be waiting for a while. Some even wait for years!! Without money, you probably sleeping on the floor or on top of each other in a small space with 1200 people there. On the contrary, where you see windows and their little space is kind of luxury. I didn’t prepare my kids well (so as to myself), we all got a bit shocked. Didn’t know what to think or say. We just followed the guide take us from place to place with mixed feeling. I hope these photos can speak itself.
