On November 23, 2023, the “Fate and Hope” institution took part in a round table of interdepartmental cooperation to provide comprehensive support to persons returning from places of imprisonment, which took place at the “Territorial Center for Social Services for the Population of the Minsk Region” State Institution.

In addition to representatives of government agencies and public organizations, people who were recently released from prison and live in the Minsk region were also invited to the round table.

In their speeches, Specialists from the Minsk District TCSON, the Minsk Regional Clinical Center “Psychiatry-Narcology”, the Department of Employment and Social Protection of the Minsk Regional Executive Committee, the head of the criminal-executive inspection of the Department of Internal Affairs of the Minsk Regional Executive Committee informed the participants about social services and comprehensive support individuals released from places of detention can receive within the framework of the state social system.

From the Religious Mission “Charitable Catholic Society “Caritas” of the Minsk-Mogilev Diocese and the “Fate and Hope” Institution participants received information about the types of assistance those released from places of detention can receive from public organizations.

All speaking experts answered questions that are relevant to those returning from prison.

At the end of the event, the Catholic Charitable Society "Caritas" and the "Fate and Hope" institution provided participants with humanitarian aid in the form of food and hygiene products, and also provided booklets containing information about organizations operating in Belarus and providing comprehensive assistance to those in need.


For information:

After leaving prison it is usually difficult for a person to normalize their life since social connections are lost, there are difficulties with housing and finding work. There is a need to adapt to new living conditions. Released persons have to overcome numerous obstacles —  internal, subjective, and external, which are beyond their control.

The process of social adaptation will be successful if the person returning from prison has solved the main life problems: there is a permanent place of work and housing, normalized relationships with family, restored socially useful connections in the main areas of life, and ties with the criminal environment have been severed. This largely depends on the rehabilitation programs offered and the attitude of the community a person is located in. It is important to lend him a helping hand in time.

After leaving prison, a person should first of all contact the TCSON at his place of residence (with a passport and a certificate of release), where he will be provided with the necessary information and financial assistance.
