Hebron Mwakindo is a connection from Kenya. What he does, prompted me to nominate him for the 2020 Heart & Dove Awards™ and Induction into the Love & Peace Hall of Fame™.

They’re NOT forgotten

Doing something helpful for the prison folk can be a chore that’s rather unpredictable. And often, it’s misunderstood by the general population. Perhaps one of the bigger challenges is to convince others that prisoners deserve compassion and assistance towards rehabilitation.

He lifts them UP!

Hebron doesn’t care about that. He works to help young inmates find back to their normal lives, and in doing so, he is a huge asset for his community.

Here is an excerpt from our communication:

“I have an activity of helping inmates especially Juvenile get Justice and more so those who cannot afford to hire legal representative.

When I have fund I hire a Lawyer for them. Where we don’t have enough funds we coach them on how to represent themselves. Most it involve visiting them and Preparing legal documents where necessary. And attend court session.

Currently I help those recommended to me by friends or relatives. It’s still in growing stage. So I do visit many.”

We need more Hebrons in our world, no matter which country. Perhaps it’s time to take a second look at those who wish to better their lives after serving time.

Hebron most definitely inspires us to find solutions for re-introduction into society… he took the first steps to help.
