More than 2000 participants took part in the Yellow Ribbon Project walk in Suva yesterday.

The walk started from Albert Park, through Queen Elizabeth Drive, Ratu Sukuna Road, Flagstaff and back to Albert Park.

Fiji Corrections Service Commissioner, Commander Francis Kean thanked everyone who came out to participate.

He also thanked the sponsors for the Yellow Ribbon Project.

“I was surprised with the large number of people supporting this annual walk; this was a big success,” he said.

Commander Kean said he was happy to see support from families of inmates being part of the walk.

“This is an acknowledgement for those under our care. This is part of their journey on their road to acceptance,” Commander Kean said.

He said the intention of the walk was to ensure that ex-offenders become better citizens after their release from incarceration.

Stalls were also set up which sold products made by inmates.

The Emergency Control Unit K9 Dog Show involving 12 dogs was also a hit.
