The Women’s Ministry of the Teshie-Nungua Area of The Church of Pentecost has donated assorted items worth more than GH¢ 7,000.00 to the inmates of the Nsawam Medium Security Prison.
The Ministry also donated GH¢2,500.00 each to the female section and The Church of Pentecost Inmates Assembly of the male section of the prison, respectively.
The items included bags of rice, sugar, gallons of oil, boxes of canned tomatoes and boxes of frozen chicken.
The rests were toilet rolls, hand towels, sanitary pads, gallons of antiseptic, liquid soaps and bags of sachet water.
Presenting the items, the Area Women’s Ministry Leader, Deaconess Mrs Cynthia Adelaide Araba Siaw Agyepong, said the Ministry was concerned about the welfare of the inmates, especially during the period of COVID-19 pandemic.
“We believe strongly that as Christians, it is our duty to support those in the prisons because Jesus Christ wants us to do that. We are therefore here in response to that mandate,” Deaconess Siaw Agyepong said.
She was grateful to the Teshie-Nungua Area Head, Apostle Dr Alfred Koduah and his wife Rachel, for their support for the Ministry.
Chief Officer Josephine Bediako received the items on behalf of the inmates of the female section while ASP Daniel Atsu received it on behalf of the inmates of the male section.
Both of them expressed their gratitude to the Women’s Ministry of the church for their continuous support to the facility.
The Teshie-Nungua Area Women’s Ministry has over the past years been visiting and donating essential items, including cash to both the female and male sections of the Nsawam Prisons to help improve the living conditions of the inmates.
Present at the ceremony were the Teshie-Nungua Area Prisons Coordinator, Deaconess Mrs Victoria Omane Antwi, and her Assistant, Elder Samuel Nkansah Sakyi.
