Muslim Association of Kenyatta University - Mombasa Chapter visited the Shimo la Tewa borstal institution mandated with the correction of juvenile delinquents.
The 35 students accompanied by the associations patron Mr. Athman Fadhili were officially welcomed by the institutions Deputy Superintendent - Mr. Pasquale Eringo, Snr Sergeant Jessica, Welfare Officer - Mr. Kelvin, Sheikh Omar Abubakar, Ustadh Abdullahi among other officers. .
The students organised a sumptuous lunch of pilau (100kg) to the delight of their hosts. In addition they also presented them with bathing soap (1050 bars), washing soap (80 bars) & mineral water (17 cartons).
Thereafter the students shared some spiritual moments with them and challenged the boys to a football match which ended in a 1-1 draw. The talent and skill that some of these youth exhibited during the match was impressive.
The institutions administration were touched by the gesture which they said will go a long way in giving the youth hope and a feeling that their community still loves them, remembers them & looks forward to re-integrating them back into the society.
