During an exclusive interview, Asa Bantan informed DA Vibes he chose to donate to the Dominica State Prison because he believes that such a contribution can have a positive impact on the inmates.
“I’ve been trying my best to help as much people I can. Choosing the Dominica State Prison I said that there are people who need a little help, they are people just like us, they are human beings and a simple donation like that can change the minds and hearts of some inmates by them knowing that Asa Bantan came to the prison and thought of them. Some of them got vests and boxers shorts.
