#Correctional Services Partnership

RISE fm recently partnered with the Department of Correctional Services in Barberton – joining forces in fighting and curbing the spread of the Coronavirus.

RISE fm provided all the material required for making cloth masks and assisted in rejuvenating their sewing equipment and requirements on site … and Correctional Services provided the much needed manpower, effort and time. According to Mesia Moses Hlungwani, Manager Communications for the Barberton Management Area, the partnership of making cloth mask made a significant impact in rehabilitating and skilling offenders. The masks will now soon be distributed to some needy organisations/ institutions in the province that will directly benefit from this initiative.

RISE fm thanks all of those involved in turning this idea into a reality … from the RISE fm Drive team, to the management and staff of Correctional Services in Barberton and to all the offenders involved.
