The Christmas Action for Prisoners!
Since 1988, the CPA Switzerland has been allowed to use the Philippi campaign every year to write all prisons in Switzerland and to draw attention to the Christmas campaign. The inmates can order a tear-off calendar in their own language and receive encouragement every day.
The Philippi action takes its name from Biblical history. The Apostle Paul founded the first Christian community in Philippi (Macedonia) and then came into captivity.
CPA Switzerland sponsors more than 3500 calendars in more than 30 languages, which are packed together with chocolate before Christmas by members of CPA Switzerland and our partner organizations.
In the prison work, CPA Switzerland also cooperates with the “Endangered Aid Switzerland” and the “Prison Fellowship”. Both organizations also offer a visiting service for prisoners. There is also the Swiss Forum for Restorative Justice. Please visit these websites!
