A jail facility in Occidental Mindoro launched an E-dalaw Program for persons deprived of liberty (PDL) to still be able to see their loved ones.

The San Jose District Jail installed computers for PDLs to be able to video call their relatives amid the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).

According to San Jose District Jail Welfare and Development Officer JO1 Archie Familara said the E-dalaw can help the PDLs cope with the effects of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

There are currently 129 detainees inside the jail, 12 of whom have already been released since the implementation of the ECQ.

“Ito ang pinakamagandang activity since wala po tayong contact, wala tayong dalaw na personal (This is the best activity since we have no contact, no personal visits). Mayroon tayong (we have) video conferencing with the family,” he said. AAC (with reports from Von San Pedro)
