Togo YMCA and prisoners work together on health concert

On 22 September 2013, a concert in favour of the health and wellbeing of prisoners took place at the “Palais de Congres” in Lome. The Togo YMCA, through the Act2Live project, actively participated in the concert which was dedicated to the Togolese detainees. On the day, project advocacy groups gave a speech to the Togolese authorities to call for the improvement of health conditions of the detainees.

The activity was organised with the former detainee “Koko de Koffi”, who performed the Act2Live project song for the onlookers. Prisoners were also given the opportunity to ask forgiveness from the Togolese authorities, those they had offended, and all the Togolese people in general. Great Togolese artists such as King Mensah, who has received numerous international awards.

The funds raised by the concernt will be used to supply the prison with medicines. It should be noted that as we have stopped the medical support of detainees with the Act2Live project, their health conditions has considerably degraded, and the number of fatalities has increases monthly.
