Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Animah Wilson is encouraging Ghanaians to support the poor and vulnerable in society.
Ms Wilson says it is responsibility of all Ghanaians to offer a helping hand to the needy and deprived.
She was speaking to the media after donating assorted items, including used clothes, food stuffs and cash to the inmates of the Edwinase Rehabilitation Center.
The Center is home to over 85 inmates made up of mainly mentally derailed, deaf and physically challenged aged between 13 and 45.
Managers of the Center say managing the over 80 inmates daily and the attendant high electricity bills, pose a challenge.
Housemistress, Rita Manu told the Deputy Minister a broken water pump had forced inmates to depend on residents of Edwinase for water.
She also appealed to the Regional Coordinating Council to help pay the center’s electricity bills.
Emotionally charged Ms. Wilson appealed to Ghanaians not to shirk their responsibilities to the poor.
Meanwhile, Ms Wilson promised to rehabilitate the water pump at a cost of three thousand Ghana cedis and also pledged to provide the inmates with uniforms.
