Charger Limted, producer of Happy Man Bitters and other subsidiary products, has extended it’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to prison inmates in Ghana.

The company since the beginning of 2021 , has targeted vulnerable groups to empower them,either by providing seed capital for them to start sustainable businesses or provision of food stuff to the needy in rural communities of the Upper East Region and across the country.

It has also paid bills for patients at hospitals who could not afford.

This deliberate attempt to reach out to these less privileged is in accordance with the core values of Charger Limited of caring for the less privileged in society.

It is therefore in line with this policy that, the company headed by Dr. Emmanuel Bortey Borketey has provided food and cleaning agents to support prison inmates who are leaving in precarious situation at the Navrongo Prisons in the Upper East Region.

These items included:
10 boxes of medicated soap, 2 25kg bags of sugar ,10 25kg bags of rice 2 boxes of dettol detergents,20 bottles of psrazone and
100 bags of sachet water.

Public Relations Officer for the Ghana Prisons Service (GPS) in the Upper East Region, DSP Nankpani Alhassan told the media that the donation came at the right time.

According to him, at the time of the donation, the prison had run out of food stuff and other basic essentials because of the insufficient funds allocated for the upkeep of the prison inmates.

“We’ve challenge with our feeding rates.the feeding is One cedi eighty pesewas per a prisoner and as we all know, even a school child cannot even on one cedi eighty pesewas just even an hour.but we are managing .it’s for three square meals per day.that is why we always call on benevolent societies and individuals to come to our aid as far as food is concerned though government is trying it’s best but it is not enough” he said.

He therefore expressed gratitude to Charger Limited and used the opportunity to appeal to the public for support since funds from central government were not adequate. He also impressed upon government to consider increasing the feeding rates.

The presentation of  items was done by the Upper East Region’s Team of Happy Man on behalf of the CEO of Charger Limited,  Dr.Emmanuel Bortey Borketey.
