AMG International organises summer camp

VISAKHAPATNAM: "The families of prisoners suffer untold misery while the latter serve long sentences in jail," said P. Satyanarayana, retired Superintendent of Police, at a summer camp organised by AMG India International, here on Friday.

The camp was organised for the children of prisoners lodged in Central Jails in West Godavari, East Godavari, Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam districts.

He said that there was a chance of these children turning into anti-social elements when neglected by society. Commending the services of AMG towards these unfortunate children, he called upon Government and Non-Governmental agencies to emulate it.

Educational needs

The AMG takes care of the educational needs of the children in the school-going age group and extends financial assistance to the older ones to start small shops, their own dairy, goat-rearing and petty businesses on push-carts to make them stand on their own legs.

Dr. N. Jaya Kumar Rao outlined the activities of AMG.

Ms. Kezia Mohanty, Area Representative of AMG, distributed notebooks, school bags, uniforms, civil dress, socks, pens and pencils to 83 children. Homer Ephraim, Home Officer of KNH and K. Edwin Babu, AMG Representative, spoke. The camp was conducted by S. Kalyan Chakravarthy.
