Inmates of the Nsawam Female Prison were elated by a donation made by the Women’s Ministry of Salem Assembly in the New Achimota District of The Church of Pentecost last Saturday.
The gesture was part of the ministry’s activities marking the recently-held National Women’s Week Celebration.
The items, which included Bibles (English and Twi), toiletries, sanitary pads, assorted drinks, washing powder, bags of rice, gallons of oil, gari, packs of bottled water and bags of sachet water, were presented to the prison by Mrs. Eunice Kissi Agyekum (Wife of the District Pastor) and Deaconess Mary Paddy (District Women’s Ministry Leader)
Receiving the donation on behalf of the inmates, Mr. Frank Nana Ankomah, the Officer-in-Charge of the prison, expressed gratitude to the leadership and members of The Church of Pentecost for their generosity and continuous support to the prisons service.
Other members of the delegation were Elder Isaac Quansah (Presiding Elder, Salem Assembly), Elder Michael Darko (Youth Ministry Leader, Salem Assembly), Deacon Ernest Donkor (Evangelism Ministry Leader, Salem Assembly), Deaconess Dorothy Nsiah (Women’s Ministry Leader, Salem Assembly) and Deaconess Paulina Quansah (Wife of the Presiding Elder).
The inmates were very thrilled by the visit and commended the Church for their concern for welfare of prisoners.
