About Us

Our Story

Our story began In 2019, when Pastor Henry Tan, who himself were under drug addictions for his troubled past. One day, he had a vision of a place where individuals with tattoos, many of whom had been through the justice system, could turn to God. He shared this vision with like-minded individuals, and after prayer and dedication, the society was officially registered in Singapore.

The primary aim of Loving Hand Fellowship is to reach out to ex-offenders with the message of the gospel and extend a helping hand to them. This support includes assisting them in finding employment, connecting with a welcoming church community, and ultimately reintegrating into society.


Loving Hand Fellowship is a self-sustaining nonprofit organization that relies on the generosity of its volunteers, some of whom are Christian businesspeople and professionals. While it is not a church itself, it collaborates with evangelical churches, Christian organizations, and social agencies to pool resources and work together toward common goals.

Volunteers from Loving Hand Fellowship often visit prisons to provide Christian counseling. Through these sessions, they engage with inmates, gain insights into their challenges, and continue to support them upon their release.

Recovering from drug addiction is a difficult journey, and the strong pull of one's past can make it even more challenging. Many of the volunteers at Loving Hand Fellowship have walked a similar path as former addicts and prisoners, so they understand the struggles these individuals face. They are well-equipped to offer assistance in finding employment and enhancing employability through skill training. Additionally, they provide support to the families of those in need, offering financial assistance when required. The organization's commitment is to help everyone who seeks assistance, without any form of discrimination.

If you're reading this and feel inspired to join us on this challenging but rewarding journey, we warmly welcome your partnership and support. Together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of those seeking a second chance.

How We Help

We extend an open invitation to individuals in need of assistance, especially those who have faced the challenges of reintegration into society after serving time in prison. Our society comprises dedicated members, primarily prison volunteers from diverse churches and professions. We fully understand the hurdles and hardships that ex-inmates encounter upon their release.

The difficulties ex-inmates confront vary widely, from the search for employment to dealing with family rejection, building meaningful friendships, and finding a supportive community. Our society's members have firsthand experience with these challenges, having overcome them over time, eventually securing gainful employment, reuniting with estranged family members, and even forming new families through marriage.

We recognize the strong desire of ex-inmates to break free from their past life of criminal activities,substance abuse and/or various bondages (including detrimental addictive habits, sexuality issuxes etc).  As a result, our society is committed to dedicating our resources to assist ex-inmates and their loved ones in areas such as job placement, employability enhancement, and helping them start anew with a positive impact on the community. We acknowledge the genuine and very real challenges that ex-inmates face.

In our mission to reflect God's love and care, we unconditionally welcome ex-inmates without any form of bias or judgment. Our support extends to the families of ex-inmates as well. We visit their family members to offer material and financial assistance whenever it is needed. While our society is not a church, we believe that religion can provide essential spiritual support to family members.


As a result, we plan to invite family members to our fellowship for social interaction and counselling.

For instance, if we are aware of an ex-inmate experiencing marital problems with their spouse, we will send female volunteers to offer counselling and support, helping the couple mend their relationship.


If you or someone you know is in need of such assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to offer a helping hand and provide a supportive community for those seeking a fresh start.

Who Are We?

Loving Hand Fellowship's core team consists of passionate and compassionate volunteers from diverse social backgrounds who share a common vision and belief. We strongly believe in the potential for people to change and that everyone deserves a second chance, regardless of their social status or past. Our belief has been proven true through the transformation and recovery journeys of several key leaders who were previously incarcerated drug offenders with backgrounds in secret societies. Despite their colourful pasts, they have surpassed their previous circumstances and now run successful businesses in cleaning and safety-related fields for many years.

In addition to these leaders, our team includes trained counsellors serving and supporting ex-offenders. We are supported by a certified public accountant and have the guidance of a legal advisor, ensuring that our team is well-equipped to serve our goals effectively. Our primary objectives are to help ex-offenders reintegrate into society and their families, become positive contributors, and minimize the likelihood of reoffending.

Above all else, our underlying principle is simply to accept and love ex-offenders unconditionally, supporting them spiritually, socially, and emotionally with the help of God.
