A purified water producing company, Unique Nsu Pa Drinking Water led by its Chief Executive Officer, Kofi Asante Kwakye has fed the close to seven hundred (700) inmates in the all male dungeon of Koforidua Prisons.
In his address, Mr. Kwakye refer, he heard some ex-convicts sharing unkind experiences of having found oneself in the four walls of a prison cells. On the content of that sorrowful account, he tuned attention to be at the aid of the prisoner. Over the times, the company had periodically provided aid to foster homes among others, and it was the turn of Koforidua Prisons on Ghana’s 62nd anniversary celebration, 6th March, 2019.
The C.E.O. of the trending brand in purified water used the occasion to advice citizens especially the youth to desist from bad deeds and also live a life that will not easily land one in the uncomfortable walls of a prison.
Furthermore, he asked convicts to be meek in going through rehabilitation processes to come out fully reformed for better life.
Staff members of the firm dedicated the day in serving food for the inmates and shared some fun time together with them.
In addition, a chunk of the company’s product was presented.
In his appreciation speech, 2nd in command for the unit, ADP Joseph Asabre asked for more of such gestures from philanthropists to aid government cater for inmates. With a budget of GHC1.80p for an inmate a day, prisons across Ghana find it difficult to feed prisoners properly, he made known.
The service, he said, is handicapped in required resources in its daily activities. At the moment, the Koforidua Prisons operates with just a single vehicle making it extremely difficult to meet its transportation needs.
Due to conjection in the cells, infectious disease travels faster among the guys due to lack of recommended accommodation space.
The Koforidua unit of prisons was built to accommodate four hundred (400) convicts, but it currently houses six hundred and sixty (660) plus.
Meanwhile, ADP Asabre made known that every inmate is registered under the National Health Insurance Scheme to access healthcare whenever the need shows up.
