Nazareth Methodist Church supports female inmates in Sekondi

Sekondi, July 8, GNA – The Nazareth Methodist
Church at Nkontompo in the Sekondi Takoradi Metropolis, has donated assorted
items worth more than GH¢2000.00 to the female inmates in Secondi Prisons.

The items include; assorted toiletries,
drinks, sanitary pads and food items.

Chief Superintendent of Prisons Mrs Hannah
Hilda Ewoame, who received the items on behalf of the inmates, thanked the
Church for the gesture and the commitment towards the support of the female
prison inmates.

She appealed for more support from individuals
and institutions.

Chief Supt Ewoame said the Ghana Prisons
Service was doing all it could to give the inmates employable skills to ensure
that they became self-reliant after their prison.

This, she, said would reduce the socio-economic
problems in their families and also minimise the rate of recidivism and make
them useful to the larger society.

Chief Supt Ewoame said through the benevolence
of some institutions and individuals, the Service was able to register 12
inmates to sit for the National Vocational Training Institute Certificate
examination of which six of them had distinction.

She explained that any student who
unfortunately found herself in prison would not have her education curtailed
but would be helped through volunteer teachers to reach their goals in life.

Reverend Mrs Evelyn Oppong Konadu, Resident
Pastor of the Nazareth Methodist Church, said alms giving should be part of
every believer and as followers of Christ it was incumbent on the mission to
support the less privilege in the society.

She admonished the inmates to take Christ as
their Lord and personal saviour, since He is the only one that can forgive them
of their sins.

She said God sometimes used such situations to
reveal Himself to His people.

Rev Mrs Oppong assured the Prisons Officers
that the donation would not be the end.

The group had the opportunity to fellowship
with the inmates as a means of reconnecting them to the Almighty under whose
power all things were made.
