After spending two years in prison, Miroslav was released a year ago. For over 6 months he was jobless, homeless and had many debts too. Thanks to the SPJ, an association which works on projects that help individuals who have committed a crime and served time or are on probation, Miroslav is reintegrating step by step into society.
