Multiple award-winning gospel musician Ohemaa Mercy and her ministry have
commenced her borehole project for Ghana prisons.
The 'Aseda' singer on Tuesday, February 28 this year cut sod for a borehole project to
begin at James Camp Prison in Accra. The female songstress at the sod-turning ceremony
thanked officers at the prison for accepting her offer to donate such a project.
Mrs. Twum-Ampofo popularly known as Ohemaa Mercy whose recent visit to James
Camp Prison was her third time after releasing her first album promised to be back with
more projects to help improve the condition of inmates.
"I'm grateful for even allowing us to do this. It is something Ohemaa Mercy Ministry has
been doing for sometime now and this is my third time coming here. I came here years
back to donate some items, shared the word of God and the second was when I came to
have a program with them. I believe this is not going to be the end. I'm praying God helps
us with funds for us to do more not for ourselves but for Him. We want them to also have
the best so we will be back very soon." she said.
Commander of James Camp Prison, Francis Selorm Hagbe thanked Ohemaa Mercy and
her team for coming to their aid. He noted that the borehole will help the prison in
numerous ways which will positively affect the lives of the inmates.
"About a month ago you came to access the place and this morning, they informed me
that you are here to start the project. We are really grateful for this offer. Beyond using it
for utilities, it will also help our agriculture because we train the inmates here. We are so
grateful for what you are doing for us. The project you have given us is invaluable and
the only thing I can say is that the Almighty God should bless you. Anytime we fetch
water from the borehole, God should bless you." the commander said.
Mr. Isaac Twum-Ampofo, head of Ohemaa Mercy’s management team added, "one thing
Ohemaa Mercy Ministry does is fulfilling the task our master Jesus has given us. We
want to do what God has asked us to do so we want to support the prison anyway we
Ohemaa Mercy and her team after the groundbreaking ceremony toured the prison to visit
