Christmas lanterns produced by persons deprived of liberty will soon fill the streets of Pateros.

The creativity of inmates comes alive with the parols, which are set to light the streets of the municipality. 

According to Pateros Information Office chief Nelson Galario, around 500 lanterns of different designs are being prepared by persons deprived of liberty (PDLs).

These custom-built lanterns were beautifully-crafted by the PDLs at the Pateros municipal jail.

"The inmates were also provided with little incentives to help them with their basic needs," Galario said.

The local government, headed by Mayor Ike Ponce, is also hoping the project may not be miscontured as a simple accommodation of PDL products but an extension of hope to people behind bars who are also wishing for the Christmas season to be merry.

Some of the Christmas lanterns can now be seen along M. Almeda St. in Pateros, he added.

The public is also invited to witness the colorful lanterns made by the PDLs.
