Desmond Tutu once said “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world”.
2020 till now hasn’t been the best for a lot of persons, the pandemic had hit us all with unimaginable effects and we are still fighting with so many now sick and out of work. If the world ever needed so much charity; now would be the perfect time. It is in light of this that the Prisons Rehabilitation and Law Abiding Organization International (PRALARG INT’L) has decided to embark on a charity project to support the vulnerable people in our community throughout the Yuletide season and beyond.
There is no doubt that the homeless and ex-convicts have been terribly affected by the pandemic and the winter has not made it any easy. While we commend the various food pantry or food banks that have been giving out food items to the less privileged, we equally need to consider the homeless that do not even have a place or means to cook.
Bearing in mind the possible disadvantages that may arise from giving out cash gifts to some of these people who might end up purchasing drugs or other substances that may in turn be harmful to their health, our organization hopes to distribute cooked food and other basic materials such as clothing, cleaning products, and toiletries in celebration of Christmas, we also intend to create a walk-in free food kitchen where the poor, homeless and ex-inmates can get free foods and other items
PRALARG INTERNATIONAL is an acronym for Prisons Rehabilitation and Law Abiding Organization International, a 501 (c)(3)incorporated in America, a non-profit organization devoted to the reduction of crime in the society through charity, education and sensitization of the public as well as the careful rehabilitation of prison inmates. Other engagements of the organization include promoting and sustaining good moral values in the society, rehabilitation of ex-convicts and financial empowerment for the poor and the homeless.
We are on a mission to alleviate poverty, reduce crime, discourage the use of hard drug, reduce recidivism and equally provide counselling and support for crime victims and their families. Our motto is “Step in the right direction” and our vision is to make the world a better place through enlightenment, rehabilitation and empowerment.
These programs will cut across special discussion sessions with the exinmates which will help us understand and provide peculiar solutions to their challenges. The building will equally serve as a half-way center for homeless ex-prisoners, and a meeting venue for existing and intending volunteers to brainstorm on brighter initiatives to strengthen the organization and further spread our message of love and hope across the community. We ask this in good faith as our present temporary office has proven inadequate for these purposes.

The purpose of life is not only to be happy but to make others happy through our actions. You will definitely be doing a great work of service to God and humanity by donating a dollar or equally sharing the initiative with other well-meaning Individuals.
