The Jubilee Christian Ministry International, London, as part of its humanitarian activities, has donated an amount of Fourteen Thousand Ghana Cedis (GH₵14,000.00) to the Ghana Prisons Service for sinking a mechanized borehole at the Salaga Local Prison in the Northern Region to help boost water supply, and improve the health of prison inmates.
The amount, which represents Eighty Percent (80%) of the total construction cost of Eighteen Thousand Ghana Cedis (GH₵18,000.00), was presented in cheque on behalf of the London church by Reverend Seth Baah Agyekum to the Prisons Administration at the Prisons Headquarters in Accra.
The Reverend, who is a minister at the Prisons Interdenominational Church and also the Missions Director of Jubilee International, added that, “more contributions are being made by the members of the church, and as soon as an appreciable amount is realized, it will be donated to the Service to sink another borehole at the Awutu Camp Prison in the Central region”.
Receiving the Cheque on behalf of Salaga Local Prison, the Acting Director-General of Prisons, Mr. Emmanuel Yao Adzator, was grateful for the offer, and noted that the amount received, will be used for its intended purpose to better the lives of prison inmates.
“Non-Governmental and religious organizations have been of immense help to the Prisons, but some of them unfortunately, use the name of Prisons in their own interest by going in for donations that never reach us. But you have been honest, and we are most grateful for it”, Mr, Adzator added.
The Director in charge of Prisons Welfare, Mrs. Josephine Fredua-Agyemang, then presented the received cheque to the representatives of Able Water Solution, the company which won the bid to construct the project within a seven day period.
