Focused Reintegration of Ex-Detainees
The Focused Reintegration of Ex-Detainees (FRED) is a cutting-edge HLAF program which was designed to address a very glaring gap in the Philippine criminal justice system: the fate of ex-detainees after being released.
Currently we provide pre-release programs in selected jails; we also assist in the reintegration of former PDLs to their families and their communities.
