COVID-19: Inmates must produce 15,000 protective masks in the state

Twelve inmates of the Cacoal Detention House are dedicated to making protective masks

As has happened in other prisons in Rondônia, inmates of the Cacoal Detention House are engaged in the production of handmade masks. The production, as explained by the general director, Gilberto Santos de Andrade, will be primarily intended for the area of ​​public security, such as the Military Police, Civil Police, Military Fire Department and to serve the prison system in Rondônia, through the Secretary of State of Justice (Sejus), as a way of preventing the spread of the new coronavirus.”We also want to allocate part of the production to the poorest population in the municipality, in social vulnerability, to the most peripheral neighborhoods”, explained the director. In Cacoal, the prison system has 16 inmates in the women’s wing and 12 of them are involved in making masks. To start the process, two inmates participated in an intensive cutting and sewing workshop at the atelier of the Regional Penitentiary Agenor Martins de Carvalho, in Ji-Paraná, which is also involved in the production of masks. “We had some sewing machines here at the unit, but they weren’t being used yet. We have this plan to set up a studio and, given the pandemic caused by the new coronavirus and the need for masks, we managed to get some donations and resources from the Court of Justice and Prosecution, we purchased production supplies, we sent two inmates to an intensive course at the unit. prison in the district of Ji-Paraná, which replicated all the knowledge acquired to the other inmates”, highlighted Gilberto de Andrade. According to the director, the making of the masks also includes the participation of employees of the House of Detention and volunteers. The internal targets are to produce 15 thousand masks.” They are firm in this purpose, to reach 15 thousand masks made. We prepared a special space to set up this studio, we did a renovation, a painting, we prepared all the conditions. We also had the support of the Public Ministry, which made possible some donations.” The work of the inmates began last Friday (10) and production is expected to reach 500 masks per day. They are working in the production in the morning, from 7:00 am to 11:00 am and in the afternoon, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. It is noteworthy that after making, the masks are sterilized by the health professionals of the prison unit, packaged and only then sent for donation.ACTION IN OTHER UNITS In addition to Cacoal and Ji-Paraná, inmates from prisons in four other municipalities in Rondônia are involved in the production of masks and even aprons to meet the need for protective equipment for inmates themselves and prison system staff. Work using incarcerated labor is a practice of social reintegration through learning.The actions are taking place at the units in Rolim de Moura, at the Suely Maria Mendonça Resocialization Center in Porto Velho, at the Jaru Detention House and the Jaru Women’s Prison, and at the Vilhena Detention House.

雪かきで地域貢献…センバツ『21世紀枠』待つ福井・丹生高校「町の活性化にもなる」【高校野球】:中日スポーツ・東京中日スポーツ thumbnail


学校内の雪かきをする丹生の硬式野球部員たち  第94回センバツ高校野球大会(3月18日から13日間・甲子園)の出場32校を決める選考委員会が28日、オンライン形式で開かれる。一般選考は明治神宮大会枠を含めて29校。21世紀枠は困難な条件の克服や地域への貢献、文武両道など戦力以外の特色を加味し、最終候補9校から3校を選出する。北信越地区から21世紀枠の最終候補に挙がる丹生(福井)は、選出されれば春夏通じて初の甲子園となる。  人口2万人の町にある高校が吉報を心待ちにしている。丹生主将の来田竹竜内野手(2年)は「ずっと甲子園に出たいと思っていたけど、出られるチャンスが本当に来るなんて…。緊張してます」と笑顔をみせる。  部員全員が県内出身で地元の越前町や近隣の鯖江市がほとんどだ。大雪に見舞われた時には部員が自主的に地域の雪かきに協力。高齢化が進む雪国で地域への貢献も評価されての最終候補入りし、自身も越前町出身の来田は「自分が生まれ育った地域でセンバツに出られれば町の活性化にもなる」と力を込める。  冬は武道場でのユニークな練習が中心だ。練習前には畳の上で全員があおむけに寝そべって足の指を動かす。その後は高さ60センチのブロックにジャンプで乗り降りしたり、ボクシングのミットとグローブでパンチを打ったりする練習が続く。  春木竜一監督(49)は「体の使い方がうまければ強いパンチが打てる。自分の体の使い方がうまくないと、野球もうまくなれない」と独特な練習の理由を説明する。工夫を凝らした練習で2019年夏には玉村昇悟投手(現広島)を擁して福井大会準優勝。昨秋の県大会では4強入りするなど実力も付けてきた。  「もう選ばれる努力はできないけど、選ばれるチャンスはあると選手に伝えてます」と春木監督。人事は尽くした。あとは天命を待つばかりだ。 購読試読のご案内 プロ野球はもとより、メジャーリーグ、サッカー、格闘技のほかF1をはじめとするモータースポーツ情報がとくに充実。芸能情報や社会面ニュースにも定評あり。
