Ghanaian actress and host of Onua Showtime, Nana Ama McBrown, a celebrated figure with numerous awards to her name, generously donated GH¢10,000 to support the release of prisoners in Ghana.
During the cooking show, McBrown’s Kitchen, the seasoned actress presented a cheque of GH¢10,000 to the Crime Check Foundation (CCF) to aid their petty offenders project.
The cheque was handed over to the foundation’s Executive Director, Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng, during the show’s broadcast.
Mr. Oppong Kwarteng, accompanied by a female ex-convict, shared her poignant story on the show, which deeply moved Nana Ama.
The presence of the ex-convict on the cooking show aimed to convey the message that individuals should not face stigma for their past mistakes leading to imprisonment.
Instead, they should receive support to reintegrate into society successfully.
