Why we help imprisoned drug trafficking victims

Voice for Prisoners (VFP) is a Hong Kong-registered non-profit organisation since 2018. It was born from the need to unify the work of several compassionate individuals who have laboured tirelessly for many years campaigning, lobbying and helping the under-represented prisoner community in Hong Kong. 

We are indebted to the work of our volunteer supporters and board members – individuals with the heart to serve prisoners through their areas of expertise. VFP volunteers comprise prison chaplains, lawyers, ex-prisoners and members of other NGOs specialising in this area.

Our mission

We aim to…

  • Provide humanitarian aid and assistance to prisoners in Hong Kong

  • Reduce the number of drug traffickers entering and within Hong Kong

  • Organise publicity campaigns in Hong Kong and overseas to raise awareness of the consequences of drug trafficking and vulnerability of victims

  • Educate prisoners, their families and communities about the consequences of drug trafficking in Hong Kong and encourage them to participate in campaigns 

  • To network, engage and lobby for legal and penal reform with the aim of improving the rehabilitation of inmates

  • Support, encourage and raise awareness of prison visitation through any media (TV, radio, digital, social, etc)

  • Establish and moderate public forums to further our objectives  

  • Improve and increase communication and advertising to governments, administrations and communities in Hong Kong and overseas

  • Encourage repatriation of all foreign inmates to their home countries

  • Assist prisoners with further education so that, on release, they can secure better work opportunities
