Others were bags of Cement and other building materials to help furnish the Tamale Central Prison.
Mr. Marvin Senanu Akyea Spokesperson for the Savanna Business Group, indicated that they saw the need to support the inmates and carried a need assessment which gave them an idea of what the beneficiaries needed.
Mr. Akyea indicated that SBG has in the past made some donations to orphanages, deprived communities and built the capacity of the youth in various fields.
He further made a call on all Ghanaians to play a part in their own little way, to make Ghana what it should be, rather than always expecting in authority to do so.
