In some of the worst prison conditions in thr world, we have found that the inmates lack spiritual upliftment as such there is need to distribute more Bibles to these prisons. Other basic needs for distribution are; Sugar, Soap (Bathing and Toilet), Bibles, Soya Pieces Meat, Cooking Oil, Tooth Brushes, Toothpaste, exercise books and pencils for the juveniles inmates. The unfortunate reality is that many juveniles and youthful offenders have been locked in prison for several years and have yet to see a judge about their accused offense. As you can imagine, this leaves thousands of young offenders hopeless and broken hearted. Our programs are using the word of God to bring hope to the hopeless.
