Keemo Paul fulfills promise to Timehri inmates
In June, Guyana and West Indies all-rounder, Keemo Paul, paid a visit to Timehri Prison, East Bank Demerara, where he interacted with some of the inmates and encouraged them to inmates to change their lives during their time incarcerated, in order to have a positive impact on society when they are released.
He also promised to donate several balls and bats to the inmates, and he delivered on such recently. However, due to commitments with the West Indies team, he was unable to physically make the donation.
A long-time friend, Siddiq Mohamed, made a donation recently on his behalf and also encouraged the inmates to remember the words of Paul about life changes, and hope they make the most fun of the recreational time with cricket.
Mohamed promised this won’t be the end of supporting the inmates, as they have other initiatives planned in the near future.
At the previous visit, the prisoners questioned the all-rounder about life as an international cricketer, the demands of the coaches, and the pressures he faces in life.
They also indicated it was the first time an active sport personality of such magnitude visited the facility and they appreciate the wisdom he shared.
