Black Stars and Newcastle midfielder, Christian Atsu has presented a cheque for GH¢2,000 to the Sekondi Central Prison towards the training of inmates in Batik Tie and Dye.

The presentation, which was done on behalf of the midfielder by Management of Crime Check Foundation, (CCF) was in response to calls by the Prison Authorities for financial support to procure the needed materials to train inmates in Batik Tie and Dye.

Mr. Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng, the Ambassador Extraordinaire of Ghana Prisons presenting the cheque said, the rehabilitation of prisoners was key in reducing re-offending rates.

“Most often we see prisoners as lost souls, who do not need a second chance in life, but that thinking is wrong because a prison could be anybody’s potential second home. We therefore have a responsibility to show love and care to incarcerated individuals, instead of rejecting the,” he said. 

Mr. Kwarteng, who is also the Executive Director of CCF commended Christian Atsu for his immense support and contribution towards the rehabilitation and re-integration of ex-convicts in Ghana and urged other celebrities to emulate him.

“Christian Atsu has done so much to uplift the image of Ghana Prisons through his various acts of benevolence.

He has not only contributed financially to the release of over four hundred inmates, but has collaborated with CCF to launch the Ex-convicts Reintegration Project,” he added.

The Ambassador Extraordinaire of Prisons described Christian as a man, who represents the true face of love for humanity. 

Deputy Director of Prisons (DDP), Mark Agbosu, the Officer -in- Charge of Sekondi Central Prison, who received the Cheque thanked the Black Stars midfielder for his continuous support for the Ghana Prisons.

He appealed to Ghanaians to join in efforts by the Prisons Service to make the prisons a purely correctional institution.

He urged the public to come to the aid of Sekondi Central Prison by contributing to the various developmental initiatives being undertaken by the prison.
