Assemblies of God Good News Center donates to Kumasi Prisons inmates

The Good News Center Assemblies of God at Ejisu has donated items to the inmates of the Kumasi Central Prisons.

The donated items were made up of bags of rice, cartons of bottled water, toiletries and cooking oil, estimated to cost GH¢25,000, to support the upkeep of the inmates.

Rev. Augustine Acheampong, Head Pastor of the church, who presented the items to the Prisons officers, explained that the church recognised the need to support vulnerable groups like prisoners following economic challenges bedeviling the country.

According to him, as a faith-based organisation, they took inspiration from the teachings of Christ which admonishes Christians to show love to the sick, orphans,  prison inmates, the vulnerable, and the less-privileged in society.

Rev. Acheampong stated that, it was the responsibility of the church, as a compassionate ministry, to be human-centered by making human beings a project by supporting one another, especially the less-privileged in society.

He reminded the general public not to see inmates of prison as outcasts, but persons who need Christ while undergoing their reformation processes and contribute meaningfully towards the socio-economic development of the country.

The Head Pastor charged other churches and Civil Society Organisations to regularly visit prisons and children’s homes to show them love.

Chief Supt. Stella Ama Catherine, Regional Chaplain of the Kumasi Central Prisons, received the items on behalf of the Regional Commander and inmates of the prisons. She expressed her gratitude to the church for the kind gesture, and pledged that the items would be put to judicious use to enhance the living conditions of the inmates.

She further pleaded with individuals, other churches, and organisations to emulate the shining example of the church to support generously at all times to improve the living standards of the inmates.
