First Dispatch of Books to South African Prisons
After 9 months of patiently waiting, finally the moment arrived. The first batch of Srila Prabhupada’s books were delivered to the headquarters of the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) in Pretoria on 9 January 2013. For months the Sastra Dana team had been entangled in the long red-tape of the government department.
In this first batch 41 Medium Sets (738 books) were delivered. From here the books will be recorded as “assets” of the DCS and delivered to 41 prisons across South Africa. Attached are photos of the day.
Very soon they will be delivering many more sets to the DCS.
