Short presentation of Prison Fellowship:

  • Prison Fellowship Norway (PFN) is an independent part of Prison Fellowship International (PFI), a cross denominational Christian organization for help to inmates and their families and victims of crime. PFI comprises 119 member organizations, amongst which 29 are located in Europe.
  • Prison Fellowship was founded in USA in 1974 by Charles W. Colson, a former government advisor, and was established in Norway in 1988. Working on evangelical basis, the purpose is to help in bringing inmates back to the society and a new life during the imprisonment and after release.
  • How can PFN serve you, a prisoner from a foreign country?
  • There might be language barriers. Often PFN has a team of visitors with good language skills. You may ask for a visitor with such skills. You may also participate in PFN activities. Some are translated regularly—at least into English.
  • You may have some needs for help for your kin’s if/when they are coming for a visit to Norway: transportation, lodging, or other concerns.
  • And when you are travelling back home: some practical help from our local international network in your home country? We have a long record of being able to assist upon return to other countries.
