Hollard Life Assurance, a subsidiary of Hollard Ghana, has supported the Kumasi Central Prison’s canteen project with bags of cement.
The presentation was done by Nashiru Iddrisu, Managing Director of Hollard Life, in the presence of Kwaku Gyapong Fosuhene, Branch Manager of Hollard Life Kumasi, and Hollard Life Kumasi Sales Managers, Kingsley Gyebi and Helena Antwi Tolbert.
The Ashanti Regional Commander of Prisons, DDP Kwesi Asamoah Fening, received the bags of cement on behalf of his outfit in the presence of Regional PRO, ASP Richard Bukari and ADP Hilda Awoame.
Mr. Iddrisu said: “We received a call from the Kumasi Central Prison to support them build a canteen for the inmates. As a company that does well by doing good, we know that funding such a project espouses our purpose of treating everyone with care and dignity. Everyone deserves a better future, regardless of where they find themselves. Supporting the command to provide a decent eating area is our way of showing care”.
DDP Fening expressed his gratitude to Hollard Life Assurance for the honour done them.
He said: “We understand that times are hard due to COVID-19; however, Hollard has gone out of their way to help. We are very indebted to Hollard Life for responding swiftly to our call for funding. We least expected such a quick comeback. This kind gesture is necessary for maintenance of the prison’s infrastructure, and will go a long way to help in the prisoners’ reformation”.
