The Madina District Singing Bands’ Union of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has donated assorted food items to the male ward of the country’s biggest prison at Nsawam as part of their Christian duty to the suffering in society.
The food items included banku and okro stew, kokonte and groundnut soup, kenkey, hot pepper and fried fish, rice and stew as well as a sack of gari.
The President of the Union, Madam Patience Addo, said the group planned to extend its fortunes to the inmates of the prison as a core Christian duty to alleviate the plight of the prisoners and a way of thanking God for the blessings bestowed on them.
She said the inmates need public assistance to survive and pledged the Union’s continuous support for them and other vulnerable groups in the country as a humanitarian duty to society
The Officer in-Charge of the male ward, Mr. Artey, expressed the prison’s gratitude to the Union for coming to the aid of the inmates. He decried the situation where relatives of prison inmates do not bother to visit, and even disown them for good.
Other Executive members of the Union are; Bro. Remus Ofosu Ntow (Vice President), Sis. Charity Ohene Ntow (Secretary), Sis. Eva Okang (Assistant Secretary), Sis. Susana Asante (Treasurer), Sis. Clara Dwamena (Mother) and Sis. Lena Nyinaku (Financial Secretary).
