The items included 100 bags of water, 192 pairs of bathroom sandals, 3 gallons of cooking oil, 21 packs of toilet rolls, 12 bags of rice, 1 bag of gari, 5 packs of sanitary pads, 3 boxes of key soap, 2 bags of sugar, 5 boxes of carbonic soap, 3 sewing machines, 1 bag of washing powder, tins of washing powder among other items.
ASP Rosemond Osei Bonsu of the Chaplaincy Department of the Kumasi Prisons received the items on behalf of the prisons service and promised to put the things to good use.
