The women’s ministry of the Cape Coast Anglican diocese  have donated  assorted items and medicines  in support of the upkeep of inmates at the Ankaful  isolated communicable disease prison unit as part of today’s  mothers day celebration. 

The items which is worth  2,500  includes assorted medicines, bags of gari, clothing, shoes,boxes soap, toilet rolls etc.

Making the presentation, Rev father Jonathan Asare, diocesan chaplain of the women’s ministry and the Parish Priest of the St. Theresa of Avilla, Brofoedur Anglican Church, said the donation formed part of the Church’s social responsibility of contributing towards the care of those in the isolated  prison custody especially on this day that mothers across the globe are being celebrated.

He said as Christians, they were enjoined by their faith to show generosity to those in need, the poor, the suffering and the socially disadvantaged to make them feel part of the society.

Many people, he noted, were in prisons for crimes they did not commit and called on the society to avoid stigmatisation and the social exclusion of ex-convicts.

Mother  of the Cape Coast Anglican diocese, Mother Dorcas  Atta-Baffour advised the inmates not to harbour any ill motive of  revenge in their heart but to look unto God.

DSP Daniel Egan, third in command of the  communicable disease prison thanked the Fellowship for the gesture, saying “donations like this always come to us as a great relief”.

He said it was only through such acts that the inmates felt loved and had the conviction that the society had them in mind and so they needed to change their behaviours to conform to acceptable social standards.

He called on the public to refute claims that they may be infected if they visit the communicable unit, saying  tuberculosis now has a cure and not so deadly again.

He finally called on the public to organise parties during festive occasions in the communicable unit to also entertain inmates like is done for maximum prisons.
