Sri Lanka: Befriended Organization Moves into humedica Headquarters in Colombo

by Steffen Richter,  2008/01/09

Wolfgang Groß made contact with the organization “Prison Fellowship” Sri Lanka a few months ago at an international conference in Toronto. During their conversation, he discovered that the regional branch of this international organization was looking for office-space in the capital city of Colombo in Sri Lanka. Wolfgang Groß immediately promised to help and after overcoming a few challenges, the team from “Prison Fellowship” Sri Lanka moved into humedica headquarters in Dehiwala, a suburb of Colombo. We would like to take a moment to welcome the employees and wish them well in their new home.

„Prison Fellowship“ is an international organization focused on supporting inmates and their relatives during their incarceration. American Chuck Colson, a top-ranking politician and President Nixon’s chief counsel, was sentenced to two-years in prison for his involvement in the Watergate scandal. This incarceration changed his life, and in 1976 Colson founded the charity. What began as a private initiative is now an international organization: throughout the world “Prison Fellowship” helps rehabilitate inmates so they can successfully return to society, and keeps supporting them once they’re out. Alone in the US over 36,000 volunteers work for the organization.

humedica has worked repeatedly with the organization. Multiple medical team volunteers have treated countless inmates in various prisons, among others in Colombia.
