IPCA fetes 200 inmates of Senior Correctional Centre

The President of the International Prisons Chaplain Association (IPCA), Reverend Steve Mensah, and his wife, Deaconess Dr Mrs Angela Tena Mensah, feted at least 200 inmates of the Senior Correctional Centre, at Roman Ridge, in Accra.

The couple, who are members of Christ Embassy, Nungua branch, also donated soft drinks, toiletries and water valued at GH¢ 10,000.00 to the Centre as part of the celebra­tion in the just ended Yuletide.

Addressing the inmates, Rev. Mensah asked them to be grateful to God no matter the circumstanc­es in which they find themselves, adding that they should always listen to the voice of God to guide them in life.

He encouraged the inmates to study the word of God diligent­ly to enable them to overcome obstacles.

Superintendent of Prisons, Lydia Yemoh, who received the gifts and food on behalf of the Senior Correctional Centre, thanked the couple and the church for their support over the years, and prayed that God blesses them.

The couple also donated to the Awutu Camp Prison. The Officer-In-Charge of the Awutu Camp Prison, Assistant Director of Prisons (ADP) William Thomas Anaman, who received the items on behalf of the Camp, thanked the church for its donation.

He noted that broken homes was a major contributing factor that had sent the youth to prison, and reminded parents that they have an essential role to play in keeping the youth on track.

Deacones Dr Mensah said the church had embarked on a project to supply television sets, dishes and decoders to a number of prisons, to enable the inmates to listen to preaching from the ministers and other useful educational pro­grammes.
