THE LIVING conditions of about 5,000 prisoners in Kumasi, the Ashanti Region, have been improved as they have received a timely assistance from the Calvary Charismatic Center (CCC), a top charismatic church.

The leadership of CCC, led by its resident Pastor in Kumasi, Pastor Joshua Obeng, donated assorted food items, toiletries and other consumables, estimated to value at a staggering GH¢ 100,000 to three prisons in the city.

They included the male and female sections of the Kumasi Central Prisons, Amanfrom and Manhyia Prisons. The donation was to enable the managers of the three prisons take proper care of the inmates in order to improve their living standards.

Pastor Joshua Obeng said CCC has a policy of reaching out to the Kumasi City in every October with evangelism and the church leadership decided to visit the prisons and hospitals this year.

“As a church, we believe in reaching out to the world and today we are presenting food items, toiletries and variety of consumables, valued at GH¢100,000, to three prisons to better the lives of the inmates”, the man of God said.

He said aside from the donation to the Kumasi Central, Manhyia and Amanfrom Prisons, CCC would also organize church services for the prisoners, where the inmates would have the chance to give their lives to Christ.

Pastor Joshua passionately appealed to Christians to show support to prisoners and the vulnerable in the society, noting that Christ enjoins the church to visit the prisons, hospitals and vulnerable homes to care for the needy.

“As a church our vision is to produce committed Christians to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission, so we are carrying out our mandate with every member involved so that we can help to bring relief to the society”, said Pastor Joshua.

Rev. Mrs. Stella Anku, Chaplain at the Kumasi Central Prisons, who received the timely donation, on behalf of the prisoners, thanked the CCC leadership and members for their kind gesture and urged them to repeat it in future.

“CCC has shown great love for our inmates and the volume of the items to both the prisoners shows it, and we pray that God grants the church the opportunity to win more souls for Christ”, she prayed.
