On sunday 15th September, Nollywood actress Monalisa Chinda lit up the hearts of female prisoners at the Kirikiri Prison, Apapa, Lagos with an exhilarating charity visit which lasted several hours.
She donated various items including food stuffs, cloths, under wears, toiletries, perfumes, provisions and the likes through her Arise Monalisa Foundation.
She further took her time to interact and encourage the prison inmates who were overjoyed to receive her.
Speaking to the inmates on the visit, she said “Though we may not be in control of what happens to us in life, we are absolutely responsible for our reactions to what happens to us. And it is our reaction that ultimately determines the results and quality of our lives. On getting here today, I was told some inmates were recently released by strange interventions, so this can’t be the end for you.I want you to know that there is more to your life than your present state and, no matter what anyone has said to you, there is hope for you.”…..Some of them wept.
According to her rep, the inmates were not allowed to be photographed, but they had a great time bonding with the actress.
