Ghana: Ho Fiave Women of Pentecost Church Donate to Inmates of Ho Prisons

The District Women's Executive Committee of the Ho Fiave Church of Pentecost has presented food items and soap to the female ward of the Ho Central Prisons, as part of the contributions of women in the Church in the district, to ensure that life becomes a little more comfortable for the inmates.

Presenting the items, which cost GH¢300, the leader of the Fiave Women Executive Committee, Mrs. Juanita Nuekpe, said the women group of the Pentecost Church in the District saw the need to support the less-privileged in society, therefore, the decision to assist the female ward of the Ho Central Prisons.

Mrs. Nuekpe stressed that support to the needy in society should be seen as one of the key responsibilities of Christians, and noted that both the spiritual and physical needs of the people were vital in the Christian life, therefore, the gesture by the women to extend assistance to the needy, particularly the inmates.

She stressed the need for Christians to adhere to the commandment of Jesus Christ in Matt. 25:35-36 to Christians to visit prisons and to support the inmates, adding that the women group of the Fiave Church of Pentecost would regularly support the inmates to fulfill the commandment of Christ.

Receiving the items, the Officer in Charge at the Ho Central Prisons Female Ward, Superintendent Grace Allan Gayinah, lauded the gesture of the Pentecost women, and thanked them for their regular support to the inmates, and assured them that the items would be put to good use.
