She said interacting with the poor and vulnerable gave members of the Club an opportunity to show love, encourage and to re-assure the beneficiaries that they had not been abandoned to their fate. She advised the prison inmates not to lose hope in life and regard themselves as outcasts because greater achievements awaited them after serving their terms.
Mr Alex Kpetigo, Senior Chief Officer expressed appreciation for the efforts of the Club and called on other humanitarian associations to remember those in prisons in their activities since some inmates did not have relatives to visit them.
