"Bringing Families Together: A Global Network For Equality Reunion for Kids and Victims"
Around 40% of prison inmates receive no visits from their family members. The causes could include financial hardship, mental anguish, trauma, panic, fear, stigma, inability to finance the travel costs, accessibility to prison, or any combination of these. In certain circumstances, the family members may not have visited because they were unaware of the inmate's whereabouts. In order to ensure that these families visit, GNE- India tries to get in touch with them, informs them, and may even provide counselling (if necessary). We occasionally give them money to pay for their transportation.
