Our focus is on supporting individuals who are incarcerated in correctional and penal facilities for financial issues. For many, life is a constant struggle and all too often bad decisions or circumstances beyond an individual’s control can perpetuate that struggle in the most devastating of ways. We aim to relieve the burden of these inmates and strive to raise money for inmates have outstanding debt which they are unable to resolve from prison.
In many cases, families of those incarcerated have previously relied heavily on their financial support or income to survive. It is the ultimate aim of the Fund to give hope in those darkest of moments by offering a unique avenue to those inmates and their families and relieve the suffering of those struggling to sustain themselves after the loss of a primary income and offer financial aid through which they can start to overcome their burdens and rebuild their lives.
The majority of inmates released from prison are facing deportation from the country and cannot afford to pay for their ticket home for themselves and in some cases for their family. The prison welfare committee assess the financial and personal situation of each inmate and recommend cases for support and upon their release for the inmate and their family. It is the aim of Faraj Fund to minimise the financial burden upon release and to avoid new financial pressure after the resolution of their debts.
