    I was born on 22 April 1975 in Jakarta, Indonesia. I have black hair with brown skin and I need FPSS help to put my details on the website please. I really feel lonely. I have been staying in this jail for 8 years now and I have another 10 years and two months left to stay here. I don't have any family or friends to visit me or help me at all. I have no one to write to and have not recieved any letter since i have been here except for the letters I got from Chaplain Tracey Laing in Australia who informed me about your service. I like to read books, cook some food and do yoga and massage class. I have been working in the cafeteria in the prison for over six years now and I really enjoy it. I also like sweet food from Thailand. I am hoping that someone will visit your website and take pity on my situation and become my friend. I really dont' wish to be a burden on anyone but I really need friendship, support and someone to care about me. I am so alone here. God bless you and the person who reads this and writes to me.

    Tips for letter writing

  • When writing always be polite. Introduce yourself to the prisoner and explain why you have decided to support them and how you learned about them ie: FPSS website.
  • Express your appreciation to the prison authorities for allowing you the opportunity to write. All mail is censored and you should never say anything critical of the Government or the authorities.
  • Support a prisoner in a positive way and do not make promises you can't keep. False hopes lead to despair.
  • Try to be positive and avoid discussing their case or anything political. Write as a friend would to another friend - just general talk.
  • Do not offend the Thai Government or its authorities and remember that everything you say and do can have an affect on a prisoner. So be respectful and diplomatic at all times.
  • Embassy staff do their best to support prisoners and often with limited resources. Please always be polite and consider their position.
  • Avoid writing letters if you are ideologically or politically opposed to the government. There are more appropriate ways and forums for such, to campaign human rights, than using a prisoner to voice your opinion.
  • If you have any special interest or link with the country, it is a good idea to mention this in your letter. For instance, you may have visited it or studied its history.
  • Describe the level of support you are willing to provide the prisoner and ask them to confirm how you can best support them. After all, they are fully aware of the processes in place and sometimes these might be subject to change.
  • If you have any concerns with the prisoner having access to your private address then you might want to get a Post Office Box address. Otherwise, don't be overly concerned, as most prisoners are serving long to life sentences.

    Feedback is important. So please let us know if you do make contact and how it all goes. Thank you! Email enquiries click here

    HRH Princess Maha Chakree Sirindhon
    Presided over the Opening of Prom Panya Library
    On July 12, 2006, Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakree Sirindhorn has graciously presided over the opening of "Prom Panya Library" of Central Women Correctional Institution, the "Prom Panya Library" of Klong Prem Central Prison, and over the "Medical Correctional Institution". Her mercy given to those disadvantaged people behind bars was recognised as a valuable asset that ones would retain for the rest of their lives. While visiting the libraries, the Princess has given advices to correctional authorities such as "These books will be very beneficial for the custody of long-sentenced-prisoners", "Variety of books such as journals, documentary, or tourism will give prisoners with long sentence an opportunity to learn", and "In the United Kingdom, prisoners can read books before going to bed".

    At Central Women Correctional Institution, women prisoners have demonstrated to the Princess their skills on vocational training such as fresh flower mobile, merit making handicraft, and traditional Thai dessert. Men prisoners of Klong Prem Central Prison have shown their artistic skills as the making of Thai drama traditional mask, sand painting, and traditional gold lacquering handicraft. They have received a touched compliment that "Some Thai traditional works that could be lost in these present time should be preserved and done by prisoners". After visiting the Medical Correctional Institution, the Princess has gracefully given a comment on Thai corrections that "Thai prisons have well perceived prisoners as human being; every prison should respect human dignity". Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakree Sirindhorn has melted all hearts of correctional officials as one. Her act of kindness has empowered the will to perform good deed of providing meaningful rehabilitation to all offenders in Thailand.Click Here for information about training for female inmates.
