ROUMIEH JAIL

The prisons in Lebanon are overcrowded, Roumieh’s main prison as well is filthy and plagued by disease. Recently a decision was taken to provide a space in the prison serving as a multifunctional room depending on the needs, a church and a Musalla. Our target was to transform this rare and precious last remaining space in the prison to a space of hope, a space of light and a space of freedom’s simulation! Many obstacles occurred; Not only the budged is very tied but also the work conditions are very hard and specified contractors are not available. Pictures in Roumieh are not allowed, the following pictures are from similar prisons over the world.
