The game of the tournament that everyones been waiting for Prisoners help mums Warm and cosy: Wool co-ordinator Diane McEntee admiring some of the peggy square blankets knitted by prisoners at the Auckland Regional Women's Correctional Facility. Prisoners at Wiri's women's facility are helping families with newborn babies. The prisoners knit peggy squares to be sewn into blankets and tiny woollen hats for Coun- ties Manukau babies. Middlemore Hospital has the busiest birthing unit in New Zealand with more than 8000 births annually. The South Auckland Health Foundation supports and fundraises for services provided by the Counties Manukau District Health Board, including practical sup- port for families leaving hospital with new additions. That support includes the prisoners whose hand knitting is made into packs of woollen clothing then distributed to new mums who need them. Auckland Regional Women's Corrections Facility assistant reg- ional manager Vicki Muir says some older prisoners can't physi- cally take part in other activities at the site so the prison chaplaincy organised for the women to start knitting. Prisoners have also recently taken on a new task -- the creation of post-natal packs'' that include information about caring for new babies, vouchers for dis- counts on baby products and a DVD about bonding with baby. There's a benefit for the prisoners too, she says. Exposure to the parenting advice and baby care gets them thinking about their own children and caring for them when they leave prison. The women are also proud to be able to offer something back to the communities that they have offended against, with some of them know- ing the struggle it is to adjust to having a new baby and the cost involved in buying good quality, warm, items to keep babies warm and healthy.'' Prisoners will continue to help as long as we have wool available, leaflets and DVDs to package and babies born''. Wool donations can be sent directly to the prison -- c/- Liz Richards, ARWCF Chaplain, Pri- vate Bag 76908, South Auckland Mail Centre 2241.
