A grant from the Divina Gratia foundation has assisted the Padre Pio Rehabilitation centre in Ahutor Kurom, in the Catholic Archdiocese of Cape Coast.

The Humanitarian NGO held an engagement session with the inmates  to make them feel loved and cared for.
Miss Felicia Kwarteng, the team’s leader, led the donation on Saturday, January 22.

Items donated included detergents, shampoos, soft drinks, and clothing, among others.

The Centre’s Chaplain and Priest in Charge, Rev. Fr. Philip Kwame Addo, who accepted the items on behalf of the inmates, thanked the team for their thoughtful gesture and asked the team to keep the center in mind in their future outreach efforts.

“We ask that you always remember the center in your outreach and the inmates of the center will always remember you in prayers whenever mass is celebrated. ”

Mrs. Vida Christopher, the foundation’s adviser who delivered the things to the institution, also advised the inmates to be upbeat and pleasant, as this will help them heal more quickly.

According to Ms Kwarten, the NGO was established in September 2019 in Accra with the goal of providing social intervention projects to deprived communities, orphans, widows, and needy people with the help of kind individuals and organizations.

She estimates that 50 to 100 people, including members and charitable individuals, participate to donation projects.

She counseled inmates not to be depressed, but rather to feel loved and pleased every time they awoke, “because God’s gift of life is more valuable than anything else.”

She also urged individuals and organizations to contribute to the center, saying that the Catholic Church could not do it alone.
