Help for offenders

Ioane Burese
Thursday, January 31, 2013

THE Fiji Corrections Service is doing all it can to help transform the lives of offenders but the real challenge is their transition back into society.

The comment was made by Yellow Ribbon Project co-ordinator Jale Vosadrau during a YRP awareness campaign at the Kalekana SDA Church on Tuesday night.

The primary purpose of the Yellow Ribbon Project is to create awareness of the challenges faced by ex-offenders and the importance of the role of the community in accepting them back.

"These offenders can change, but for that change to come about, everyone needs to be a part of it," Mr Vosadrau said.

"It is important that the community knows the vital role they play in helping ex-offenders get their lives back on track."

Mr Vosadrau spoke on the roles of the service and their importance as far as national safety and security is concerned.
