The Yongchuan prison in Chongqing held special Valentine’s Day activities for its inmates earlier this week, resulting in a teary reunion between the locked-up and their loved ones.
More than a dozen inmates worked together to decorate the family meeting venue. “Love, reunion” was written on the blackboard.
Yongchuan prison guards said that the “Prison specially arranged the family meetings in order for them to get support from family so they could make efforts to transform and eventually get a new lease on life.”
