In preparation for Mothers’ Day commemoration, CHREAA facilitated the interviewing of women who were in prisons with their children. These children were taken to prisons with their mothers due to their age and some of them were born in prison. The children’s ages ranged from 3 months to 5 years. With the prison conditions in Malawi, the women revealed that they face a wide range of problems raising children in prison; dietary, sanitary and general health and welfare of the mother and child. CHREAA funded the publication of the information collected and also wrote a letter to the president seeking presidential pardon of the women. In December, there was a pardon of all women with children in prisons.
