Nana Ama McBrown, an award-winning Ghanaian actress and host of Onua Showtime, gave GH¢10,000 to help free prisoners in Ghana.
The experienced actress gave a GH¢10,000 check to the Crime Check Foundation (CCF), which helped fund the group’s project for minor offenders.
The check was given to Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng, who is the Executive Director of the foundation, during the cooking show McBrown’s Kitchen.
Mr. Oppong Kwarteng, the Executive Director of the foundation, was on the show with a woman who had been in prison and told her story, which moved Nana Ama.
The former prisoner’s appearance on the cooking show was meant to show that prisoners shouldn’t be shamed for the crimes and mistakes that got them locked up. Instead, they should be helped to become useful members of society again.
