As part of the yellow ribbon and re-allocation program embarking into this festive season, the Fiji Correction Services had run an activity where offenders from the Women Correction Service, Nasinu Correction Service along with the USP Pasifika voices sang Christmas carols at the Centenary Church in Suva today.
Fiji Correction Services Assistant Commissioner, Salote Panapasa highlighted that the main reason for today's program is to allow gradual integration for those who are serving their time.
Panapasa says through the care program, talented offenders are identified and their talents are utilized when they come out into the community.
She says that even though these offenders are bound physically behind bars, spiritually they are free.
She says they have a merge reach out programme with the USP Pasifika Voice where they provide singing programs for offenders and to actually participate together in events such as this.
Panapasa adds this is also a message of hope to the general loved ones, families and the community and also those who are incurs-orated.
Panapasa says a few more places that they will be visiting next week is the Dikusha Home, St Christopher’s Home and Senior Citizen Home in Naulu.
