There's A Plan To Get QLD Prisoners Making Origami Cranes For Sick Kids

There's a bizarre plan to curb violence in a Queensland jail housing the state's worst paedophiles.

According to the Courier Mail, staff at Wolston Correctional Centre have been briefed on a new violence prevention project, that'll see inmates making origami cranes to be sent to sick children.

Ancient Japanese legend states the Gods will grant a wish to any person who folds 1,000 origami cranes.

They're set to be strung together and presented to the Children's Hospital Foundation.

While the plan has not been confirmed by the prison, many are taking issue with it right off the bat.

Some are uncomfortable with the inmates of a high security prison making gifts for sick children, while others simply believe that the time of the inmates could be spent on other, more productive things.

The plan was a part of the Healthy Prisoners Framework, which also includes the inmates participating in the One Million Stars to End Violence campaign, which will see prisoners taught to weave a star, and it added to those that will be displayed in 2018.

Other controversial aspects of the Framework include family meals and birthday cakes for prisoners that exhibit good behaviour.
