Ghana: GCB Bank staff support Wa Prison

The staff of the Wa Branch of GCB Bank PLC have generously donated items worth GH¢8,000 to the Wa Central Prison Led by Branch Manager Mr. Dennis Boateng-Bempah.

The donated items include essential supplies such as sugar, rice, cooking oil, liquid soap, cement, soft drinks, toiletries, and more.

This act of kindness, which took place on May Day, was prompted by a visit from the Branch Manager and his team to the prison a few months ago. Witnessing the conditions there moved them to offer support to the inmates and show appreciation for the efforts of the prison officers. The staff of the branch willingly contributed to this meaningful cause.

The items were received by the Regional Commander, Mr. James Mwinyelle, on behalf of Ghana Prisons Service. He expressed his profound gratitude to the branch staff and management of GCB Bank for going the extra mile to offer a helping hand. “These items will go a long way to support and provide a sense of relief to the over 200 inmates. The cement bags will be used to reconstruct the broken-down wall to reaffirm the security at the prison,” he added.

The Wa Prison was set up in 1920 and was equipped to accommodate 15 inmates in the Upper East Region. Over the years, the correctional centre has seen some growth and expansion to house more inmates. The facility currently holds over 200 inmates.

GCB Bank, Ghana’s largest indigenous bank with more than 184 branches across the country, has a longstanding commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR). Over its 70 years of operation, the bank has actively engaged with the communities in which it operates through various CSR initiatives. Additionally, the bank encourages its staff to contribute to these efforts, aligning with its motto – “Your bank for life!”
