What’s Happening Locally

Cambodia

Case workers and volunteers in Cambodia are working to get children access to personal protective equipment and hygiene products. One child, who received hand sanitizer and protective masks, wrote to his sponsor saying “I would like to say than you very much that you gave me the monetary gift. I used your money to buy… face masks and hand wash liquid to prevent coronavirus as it has been happening right now in my country.”

Canada

Prison Fellowship Canada is working to strengthen the relationships it has with church partners, Chaplins, and aftercare initiatives. Volunteers in Canada are using the time they would have spent in prisons to connect with one another and pray.

Chile

Prison Fellowship Chile joined efforts with the national evangelical chaplaincy and the local Chaplins to bring food supplies and hygiene items to prisons. While they were not able to enter the prison, PF Chile delivered the supplies to the gates. External volunteers, other donors, and PF Chile funded the purchase of these supplies.

Colombia

Prison Fellowship Colombia is visiting prisons and delivering scriptural material to prisoners. While The Prisoner’s Journey is suspended in some prisons, in others, PF Colombia is leveraging existing prison technology — like Closed Circuit Television — to continue deliver of the TPJ program. PF Colombia is also distributing food baskets to families in need.

Rwanda

In March, PF Rwanda provided child protection and health training for children and caregivers in preparation for the potential impact of COVID-19. During the training, children were taught beneficial health, hygiene, and personal care practices — including proper hand sanitizing. Families were also provided with health and hygiene supplies, food, and clothing.

Solomon Islands

Prison Fellowship Solomon Islands was invited by the prison administration to enter the prison every day and prepare the food for the prisoners. The Regional Director states this is a “wonderful opening and display of trust.” Although courses are suspended due to the pandemic, collaboration and service like this will likely pave an easier road back to normal after the crisis has passed.
