No doubt crime remains one of the major problems facing South Africa it devistates our cities and destroys our peace and security !

Thousands of children in South Africa are classified as the Orphans of the Living. With parents missing or in prison, these children are forced into the care of family members, the State, or even in some cases, they become  child headed families where the oldest child has to take responsibility for the wellbeing of his/her siblings. For them is not the experience of paternal love, the sanctuary of home, or the joy of family. Their existence for the most part, is characterised by depravation, severe need, and lack of care.

This year again, PFSA and our partners will facilitate a Christmas party for some 250 children of incarcerated ladies at Pretoria Female Correctional Centre. The sentenced females will be allowed onto the sports fields where under strict supervision, they will be joined by their children and the accompanying care giver, DCS personnel, community members, as well as PFSA volunteers and partners.

Gifts will be supplied to the mothers to give to their children during a day of celebration and festivity aimed at reconciling broken families and restoring family units, the building blocks of society.

Those inmates due for release by April/May next year, will receive additional focus as the churches they identify as their own will be invited to attend, meet with, and embark upon a journey with these families involved, preparing them for the release of the mother, visiting her once a week for the final three months of incarceration, and being there to receive her on her day of release.

 This will serve to establish the Church as the bridge linking the prison-church and the community-church, and receive her into a support and accountability group that will assist her with her reintegration back into society and hold her accountable for her commitment to a life change and becoming a positive, contributing member of society
