One hundreds of breads, canned food, sweets and other food products was delivered today in the capacities of our kitchen. Apart from food items, the office of Doboj Prison also donated protective masks and gloves, which our employees immediately distributed to our beneficiaries, along with the food.
“The convicted individuals in Doboj Prison while reading the daily press they read that in some Prison institution, convicted individuals donated their daily meals to people in social need. Encouraged by this fact, they addressed to the administration with a request that they also give up their meal for one day, and on that request, we accepted their decision, collected all the food that was to be served to the convicted people today, and donated it to the National Kitchen here in Doboj.

I would like to emphasize another very important point, and that is the purpose of Prison institutions which is precisely re-socialization of prisoners, which was completely accomplished by this act.” Branko Miletic, director of Doboj Prison, states in his statement.
