The Bekwai Central Destitute Infirmary has taken delivery of large quantity of food supplies and other items in support of the upkeep of the inmates.
These included bags of maize, rice, sugar, tomato paste, creates of egg, edible oil, fruits, bottled and sachet water, tooth paste, washing soap, detergents and clothing.
They were a gift from the Kumasi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI).
Ms. Jacqueline Bondzie, the Executive Secretary, said it was their contribution towards taking care of the destitute – bring some comfort to them.
The facility, established in 1957, is being run on government subvention and the releases have not only been irregular but the size has also kept shrinking.
It is against this background that the donation is seen as both timely and a welcomed relief.
Madam Matilda Dufie Darko, the acting Warden, thanked the Chamber for the gesture and pledged that the items would be used for the intended purpose – to benefit the inmates.
She appealed to corporate bodies and individuals to assist take good care of the destitute.
