In recognition of the plight of children who live with their parents in prison, Friends of Bolivia sent help to Pintando Sonrisas (Painting Smiles) a small charity working in Bolivia for the benefit of children living within prisons. They help by teaching the parents crafts and simple trades to become self sufficient once out of prison. They will also provide Christmas presents for nearly 600 children. This coming Christmas they will concentrate their activities on the three prisons in La Paz; Penal de San Pedro, Women’s Correctional Centre in Obrajes and Women’s Correctional Centre in Miraflores.
Our work coincides with Prison Advice and Care Trust’s Prisoner’s Sunday 2014
