Ghana: Church of Pentecost Feeds Ho Prison Inmates

The Ho Area Prisons Discharge Board Chairman of the Prisons Committee of the Church of Pentecost, Pastor Dieudone Komla Nuekpe, on behalf of the Area Head of the Church, Apostle Moses Ayitey, presented packs of rice and other food items to the inmates of the Ho Central Prisons.

The inmates, numbering 220, were fed with cooked rice and chicken, which they ate with much joy without seeing the women who normally prepare the food, because the women, who were given the same meal, eat separately at the female ward, a moment they all appreciated from the way they enjoyed the food.

Presenting the food for distribution to the inmates, Pastor Nuekpe said the regular visits and support being given to the inmates was part of the church's religious duty as commanded by Christ to assist the poor and needy in society.

Pastor Nuekpe pointed out that the church, under the leadership of Apostle Ayitey, had programmes and activities to support the needy, not only through the provision of physical needs, but also meet their spiritual needs at all times.

A Prison Officer, who received the food on behalf of the Regional Commander of Prisons, Mr. Martin Darko, thanked the Church of Pentecost for the continuous support being given to the inmates, including the sharing of copies of the Bible after eating, which he said, would help promote their spiritual life.
