On the occassion of our 25th founding anniversary, we have aligned this milestone occassion on the church's celebration of the 32nd Prisons Awareness Week on 21-27 October 2019. 

Various activities are lined up for the celebration that includes: 

1) ENGAGEMENTS of different institutions & communities and EXPOSURES in the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) of students and various groups and organizations; 

2) DISTRIBUTION of gift packs inside NBP and CIW with the following itinerary:  

  • October 22, Tuesday - Reception and Diagnostic Center (RDC)
  • October 23, Wednesday- Maximum Security Compound and NBP Hospital
  • October 24, Thursday - Minimum Security Compound
  • October 25, Friday - Medium Security Compound
  • October 26, Saturday - Correctional Institute for Women (CIW)
  • October 27, Sunday- Prison Awareness Masses in all the security compounds

In this matter, we wish to invite you to SUPPORT us in the holistic rehabilitation program that goes beyond mere punishment for the offenders:   

1. VOLUNTEER for the packing of lootbags on Oct. 18,19 & 20. You may sign-up here!

2. VISIT New Bilibid Prison during the weeklong celebration to gain experiential knowledge and experience on the issues hounding the prison. See schedule above.

3. DONATE* either CASH or IN-KIND. We accept in-kind donations with the following suggested items: 

  • Toiletries (e.g. bath soap, laundry soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste)
  • Personal Hygienic Accessories (e.g. towel, underwear, slippers, plain shirt)
  • Food Items (e,g, rice, canned goods, biscuits, 3in1 coffee, powdered milk, eggs)
  • OTC (over the counter medicines)

With the increasing number of inmates in the NBP and CIW (population of 27,880 and 3,220 respectively as of July 2019), the giving of gift packs continues up to this day. Our goal this year is to increase our funding in order to cater to the 30% (8,500 PDL's) of the total population during the weeklong celebration. Our priority are the visitor-less, indigent, sick and old inmates inside the security compounds. 

May this event provide us more experiential knowledge as we witness the realities inside the prison.
