BROADCAST journalist with Ashh 101.1 fm who is a member of the Society of Adventists in Media, Ghana (SAM), Mr. Dasebre Adjei Dwamena, has presented some items to resource the female section of the Kumasi Central Prisons as part of activities to celebrate his birthday.
Mr. Adjei Dwamena, also the News Editor of Ashh fm, at a ceremony in Kumasi presented four cartons of toilet roll, three boxes of sanitary pads, three bags of second-hand clothes, two bags of washing powder and six boxes of bar soap.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony he said the birthday marked an important milestone in his lifetime.
He recalled that during the 2016 general elections, he went through tough times and should anybody have told him he would be alive till today, he would not have believed the person.
However, he said with faith in God he had kept a life unblemished for the past seven months and as part of his expression of gratitude to the Lord Almighty for sustenance of livelihood, he deemed it necessary to support the needy in society, hence, inmates of the Kumasi Central Prisons on his birthday.
Anybody at all can be in Prison
He noted that nobody was above the inmates of prison cells and that to him, under no circumstance, should members of society underate those in prison cells.
He said innocent persons could even land in prisons and that there was the need for members of society to wash memory of thinking that only bad persons or criminals are put into prisons.
Even if so, he said, it was important for society to constantly stretch a helping hand to help the prisons develope to enhance livelihood over there.
“Those in prisons could be my family members or your family members. What happened to them could happen to anybody at all. For this reason, we must constantly visit them and support them both in kind and in cash for the prisons to develop. The prisoners could through the benevolence of society help transform for the better”, he stated.
He however, called on all and sundry to join him in celebration of his birthday so as to be able to pour gratitude to the Lord how far he has brought him and also ask for protection in the coming years.

She appealed to society not to relent in efforts to help resource the prisons on the proper upkeep of the inmates of the prisons.
