Nana Ama McBrown, the host of Onua Showtime and a talented actress from Ghana with several awards, gave GH¢10,000 to the liberation of inmates in Ghana.
The seasoned actress gave the Crime Check Foundation (CCF), which funded the organization’s petty offenders project, a check for GH¢10,000.
During the cooking program McBrown’s Kitchen, the check was given to Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng, the executive director of the foundation.
Nana Ama was moved to tears by the narrative of a female ex-convict who was on the show with the foundation’s executive director, Mr. Oppong Kwarteng. Most of the victims are innocent but because they don’t have anybody to support them during such accusations, they have to be detained and further sent to jail.
The ex-offenders appearance on the culinary show served as a demonstration that prisoners ought to be helped to properly integrate into society rather than being stigmatized for the crimes and errors they committed that led to their incarceration.
