The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) is sponsoring a new initiative to feed parolees in need who have been released during the COVID-19 pandemic in South Africa. The Benoni City Times newspaper covered the launch of the parolee feeding initiative, which is being implemented in partnership with the Africa Choice Foundation and local leaders.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“Thank you to the foundations for heeding the call of nation building,” said Monica Mabena, Acting Area Commissioner.
Rev Dr Menzi Mkhathini, director of spiritual care, also expressed appreciation for the foundations in taking the initiative.
“This is a gesture that will encourage parolees to reach new heights. The donation is meant to sustain them,” he said.
Mkhathini highlighted that Prem Rawat Foundation runs the Peace Education Programme at various correctional facilities which provides access to programmes that improve inmate outcomes during incarceration and post-release.
Gauteng regional commissioner Grace Molatedi added that the recipients of the food parcels have gone through rehabilitation and correctional process that will enable them to start their own viable projects in their communities.
“The food parcels are meant to encourage parolees so that they work hard and remain outside the prison,” Molatedi said.
