They said that it could not go unnoticed to see people forfeit their new year holidays to come and share with the inmates. They also added that they were humbled by the generosity of the Thika people adding that this was one way of helping to reform these inmates.

"When these people see you appreciating them in the state they are in, it will help them to accept you and eventually ease their integration back to the society," said Mr. Kunzu.
