Programs of life Foundation help prisoners to start a new life out of prison ، Are you ex-prisoner? be strong and share your story with us and we’ll help you to start again.
If we want to reduce the number of prisoners, the ex-prisoners need more empathy and understanding, that’s what life Foundation for development and community integration -the leading foundation in the field of rehabilitation and integration in Egypt- believe in.
For some prisoners especially whom served many years or decades of their lives in prison, release and back to their families are untold happiness.
But societal conditions and stigma are chasing prisoners in all countries especially in Arab countries and may prevent prisoners back to their lives.
They feel lost with no supporter or no breadwinner especially women because of family relationships breakdown; ex-prisoner get trauma and inability to adapt with Society again.
Mostly, they want to have another opportunity to live but they don’t know how to get it. so they need guidance and psychological rehabilitation and need lawyers to conduct their legal proceedings and help them to own houses which some prisoners lose their houses during they were serving their sentence and their resources become limited after release and others have only their clothes.
Self-reliance is a challenge for them which they don’t have the capacity to face it especially when all doors shut in their faces which were open before.
Back to prison become their desire to restore their psychological stability because many of prisoners fail to restore their lives before committing to prison, so they end up being in prison again.
Many of Life Foundation Clients before they join Life Foundation programs they said “ if only I back to prison”.
But Life Foundation team has always been able to change this opinion and play the role of alternative family and provide the necessary support to whom want the foundation assistance.
The early hours of life in prison make a really difference for them which they should adapt with their new society, so after a while prison become their shelter, home and lifeblood and the outside world become as a wide sea which they can’t swim.
So Life Foundation is seeking to be the shelter, home and lifeblood for all releases; and it’s doing its best to find the available methods to help the prisoners to rebuild their lives with the help of national rehabilitation and reintegration system.
That’s why we are working hardly like a beehive and seeking access to every prisoner has served his/her sentence and need our help to restore his/her life.
