Evolving Prisons

Laura Bevan talks about our work and shares some stories of the people we have helped. 

"It's very clear from the stories we hear that corruption does exist, that people have to pay for everything in prison. We've heard of people in Peru having to pay somebody just to get out to the toilet, in the Philippines having to pay just to get to the hospital. This is how some of these systems are run."

Laura Bevan and Theresa Gilson discuss the challenges and successes Prisoners Abroad encounters in this episode which also features interviews with Sonia, who we helped when she was in prison in the US, and Sue, whose husband was also in prison there. 

"For authorities to take that into account that everybody is human and everybody deserves a second chance would be an absolutely life-changing thing for thousands of people around the world."
