We were the first ever SA program in a prison outside the USA. It started at the Newcastle Monday night beginners group Prison Subcommittee. A prison chaplain at Junee Correctional helped us start the first ever SA program in an Aussie prison. We were able to help around six friends in prison within the very first months of our sponsor-by-mail program. With the help of all the intergroups in Australia we were soon helped with White Books, pamphlets, money to pay for postage, and a post office box. The fellowship in Australia was more than happy to help the program.
