Description : The prison holds roughly 2,600 people, more than three times its maximum capacity of 800.
In this overcrowded prison, the detainees share their space with a great number of insects transmitting diseases. The ICRC organizes a treatment with pesticide to improve the hygiene and the conditions of living in the prison.

Two hours after the spraying, the inmates can get back to their room with their personal belongings. They also received a mat and soap.
