The Royal House Chapel International, as part of its Prisons Service/school of restoration project, has held a four-day outreach program  which took the form of medical care, prayer sessions, counseling and feeding of the inmates of the Koforidua Prisons.

The Medical Mission of the church and its members offered free healthcare services and medications for ailments ranging from Malaria, skin rashes, coughs, infections, Glaucoma, and many others.

The Church has also put in place arrangements to join efforts at facilitating the social re-integration of ex-convicts to stem the incidence of recidivism, which sends them back to the prisons.

Ms Mavis Frimpong, the Eastern Regional Minister-designate, who led part of the prayer session, urged the inmates to be obedient and calm whiles in prison and acquire any skill available to prepare them adequately to earn a living when released from prison.

She said government was committed to the welfare of prisoners especially in the area of their re-integration into society after they had finished serving their prison terms.

The ‘Efiase Project’ instituted by President Mahama, she said, was a clear evidence of this adding that plans were far advanced to begin a research into their backgrounds to facilitate a better out-of-prison life.

Apostle Sam Korankye-Ankrah, General overseer of the Royal House Chapel, said the programme was to show love and compassion to the prisoners and assure them that regardless of their incarceration, they are still part of the larger society.

“All this that we are doing as a church is for you to still feel loved and belonged to the society and not to nurse bitterness and pain which would be unleashed to the society when you are out of prison”, he added.

The general overseer thanked the prison officers for opting to do such a job of taking care of people who have been rejected by society and promised to provide them with an overhead tank and also repair the old one to make life better for the for the prisoners.
