Paradise Prayer Center, a prayer group at South Odorkor in the Greater Accra Region, Ghana as part of its head pastor’s birthday celebration has donated an amount of fifty thousand Ghana cedis to Crime Check Foundation CCF to support prisoners and the marginalized in society.
The head pastor, Elder Daniel Owusu said the gesture is to show appreciation to God for how far he has brought him. He said he thought it a worthy responsibility to support the release of prisoners and the needy. “I have been watching the Foundation’s programme for two years now and I deem it right to help my fellow brothers and sisters in Ghana’s prisons who are suffering and have no one to turn to”. He said.
Receiving the money on behalf of the Foundation, its Executive Director, Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng extended profound gratitude and appreciation to the prayer centre for its benevolent gesture towards the poor and prisoners.
He said the money will go a long way to help the Petty Offenders Project of CCF which seeks to pay court fines of Prisoners who are unable to pay their fines and in default have to serve huge sentences.
He also said part of the money will be used to cater for other projects of the Foundation including the Educational Support, Health Check and Charity.
Elder Daniel Owusu advised the public to be patriotic and always endeavor to give to the poor when God blesses them with money. He also encouraged inmates in Ghana’s prisons to have faith in God and hope for a better future.
Members of the Paradise Prayer Centre also visited the Village of Hope and Royal Seed Home Orphanages in the Central Region of Ghana to donate money, clothes and food to the children. They also organized party for the kids as part of its social responsibility towards the marginalized.
