Manhyia Local Prison Gets Assistance

The Men’s Fellowship of the Abuakwa Emmanuel Methodist Church has donated assorted items in support of the upkeep of inmates of the Manhyia Local Prison in Kumasi.


These included used clothing, bags of rice, sugar, iodated salt, washing powder, liquid soap, toilet roll and large quantity of tooth brush and paste.

Mr. Yaw Danso, its Chairman, said this was their contribution towards helping to make things a bit better for the prisoners.

As Christians, they were enjoined by their faith to show generosity to those in need – the poor, the suffering and the socially disadvantaged.

He invited the church to do more to aid the reformation of prisoners and their integration into the society.

Mr. Danso said it should support the prisons to provide skills training to the inmates so that they would not have any incentive to go back to their bad ways after regaining their freedom.

It was also important for the church to help the society to do away with stigmatization and the social exclusion of ex-convicts.

He reminded the youth to make the right decisions to avoid running into trouble with the law.

Assistant Superintendent of Prisons Samuel Bosomtwe, an Official of the Prison, thanked the Fellowship for the gesture and appealed for public assist improve conditions there.
