Kumasi Catholic Archdiocese donates musical instruments, plastic chairs to Manhyia Local Prisons

The New Tafo Corpus Christi Parish, Asawase and Amakom Deanery, on behalf of the Catholic Archdiocese of Kumasi have donated musical instruments and plastic chairs to the Manhyia Local Prisons. This comes as part of the Catholic Archdiocesan social responsibilities.

The items included; 100 plastic chairs, Speakers, Cordless mic, Bass Combo, Drivers microphone, Driver seat, Mixer Rack, Crossover and Amplifier.

Besides the GH¢40,000 committed to acquiring the items, an undisclosed amount of money was also donated to the local prison.

Rev. Father Isaac Menu, Dean of Asawase Deanery, who presented the items to the Manhyia Local Prisons on behalf of the Archdiocese, explained that the gesture was geared towards bringing the experience of God’s happiness to the inmates.

According to him, the Catholic Church has been worshipping and dining with the inmates every December 25, with gifts to share with them on the joy of the birth of Christ.

It was during one of such interactions that the prison officers appealed to them to help the inmates with musical instruments for use in their church activities.

He disclosed that the items were procured through the contributions of individual Parishners from the churches, especially the Legion of Mary Society, to get the items for the inmates.

Rev. Father Manu appealed to other churches, civil society organisations, corporate bodies and individuals to extend a helping hand to the needy, especially inmates in our prisons, to help in their transformation. This is because the government cannot shoulder the burden alone, without the support of the citizenry.

Mr. Joseph Asabre, Deputy Director of Prisons in charge of Manhyia Local Prisons, expressed their profound gratitude to the Catholic Archdiocese of Kumasi for the kind gesture and their continued support and motivations to the inmates by worshipping with them every Christmas day, which he said would go a long way to help the transformational agenda of the government through the Interior Ministry.

He noted that fighting crime is a collective responsibility, and for that matter, he believes that the items would help the spiritual transformation of the lives of the inmates to become responsible citizens when they return to their families.
