Prison Visits

We annually send Australian teams to visit prisons in Thailand. We have inside visits with the churches behind bars to encourage each other and meet with pen friends

Churches Behind Bars

Every prison we visit is home to a Christian church. We support and equip them to grow in their faith during their term and hold out hope for the future.

Hope Farm

Our future vision includes a working farm Hope Farm and halfway house, which will support prisoners and help them, while on parole, to readjust to life and reintegrate successfully into society.

Who we are

We are a group of volunteers based in Australia, reaching out to prisoners in Thailand giving them hope. There are over 300,000 men and women surviving, under extremely difficult conditions, in Thai prisons. As a registered charity in Queensland, Australia, our aim is to support these prisoners in various ways while they are still in prison and upon release.

Our Mission

  • Our underlying Christian values dictate that all life is valuable, that forgiveness sets people free and that our only hope to live abundant free lives is through Jesus Christ.
  • We aim to reach out to those deserted and often serving life sentences in prison.
  • We believe that we are all called to a ministry of reconciliation, reconciling people to God and people to each other. This belief finds expression in what we do and the way we do it.
  • Our practical outreach involves writing letters of hope, fundraising for the prisoners and visiting them every year.
  • We welcome anybody who would like to reach out with compassion to those in prison.
