CCF continues to see transformations just like Srey Lin’s.

At the beginning of the year, we met with the director of Unit 1, a huge prison ten-minute walk from the women’s prison. Unit 1 houses 1,700 inmates, mainly men, with a staff of 1,200. The director heard Prem Rawat speak when he came here last year and invited us to start a workshop there, too. We told him that Prem Rawat might come to South America again soon, and he said, “Let’s invite him. His message will help the inmates!” We happily agreed!
