In 2007, a new prison was opened about three miles outside of Korçë. The 400 prisoners live in cramped conditions, with six people in each 5 by 6 foot cell, either serving their sentences or awaiting their trial. In winter it is often very cold and there is very little to do in the prison.
The Kenedi Foundation, in cooperation with the Albanian organization SHKBSH visits the prisoners and offers a weekly Bible study as well as Alpha courses.
The families of many of these prisoners are suffering as well. Having not only lost one of the parents, many families have also lost their income and are living in poverty and hunger. Forty families receive encouraging visits from the two dedicated Kenedi employees running the ministry, as well as food rations to help make life more bearable.
