3 years ago

President of the Ghana Football Association Kurt Edwin Simoen-Okraku on Thursday, June 30, 2020 led a team of ex-national stars and Executives of the Greater Accra Regional Football Association to distribute PPEs to the people of Mamobi, a suburb of Accra.

Mr. Simoen-Okraku was joined by former Ghana Captain Stephen Appiah and Ibrahim Tanko, Coach of the home-based Black Stars for the distribution.

Former Ghana forward Augustine Ahinful also took part in the distribution exercise with support from GFA Deputy General Secretary Alex Asante.


Chairman of the Greater Accra Regional Football Association, Samuel Aboabire organized the entire exercise as would be done regionally by each of the remaining RFA Chairmen across the country.

It would be recalled that on Friday, July 24, 2020, the Black Stars donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and assorted items worth one hundred thousand Ghana Cedis (GH¢100,000) to the Ghana Football Association to be distributed to Ghanaians as their contribution to the fight against COVID-19.

The other RFAs will distribute theirs in the coming days. Former and current players, Club Administrators and some club owners will do same across the 10 football regions for and on behalf of the Black Stars.
