The topic of women convicts serving time is not very simple…. when we looked at the girls performing and learned their stories… just goosebumps….. All the women and girls of course wished a speedy release and reunion with their families and CHILDREN ( this is a separate topic).
We have outlined joint plans for cooperation! We will continue our cooperation!
