Story

We are raising £30,000 to Support the Stroke Units of Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, and to support grassroot football in the less priviledged areas in Ghana.

Story

Coach Hene (The King of Coaches) was a name bestowed on Coach Emmanuel Kwasi Afranie in recognition of his great contribution to Ghana and the football world. He was the only Ghanaian coach to have coached all the national teams in Ghana - all levels of the Ghana youth national teams, the senior national team - Black Stars, as well as the women’s national team - The Black Queens.

Coach Afranie had amazing success across the board - 4 world cups, winning Gold and Silver in 1991 and 1997 FIFA U-17 World Cups respectively, Silver at the 2001 U-20 FIFA World Cup (Argentina), Gold at the 1982 Afcon as an Asst. Coach with the Black Stars. He was the first coach to have won the Ghana Premier League with the 2 most glamorous clubs in Ghana: Kumasi Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak. World football stars like the legendary Abedi Pele, Tony Yeboah, Samuel Osei Kuffour, Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari, John Paintsil and many more started their career under his coaching.

A sudden unexpected illness and his demise left a gaping hole in the hearts of his family and the football community. Coach Afranie, fit and full of life, suffered a mild stroke while training a local youth football team he founded in his community. There was however light at the end of the tunnel as Coach Hene was discharged from the Stroke Unit of the Korle Bu Hospital in Accra, to continue his recuperation at a rehabilitation centre in Kumasi, Ghana.

The journey from Accra to Kumasi in an ambulance was unfortunately cut short in an accident. Coach Hene, after fighting the scourge of stroke, sadly did not survive when the ambulance crashed.

We are passionate about this foundation for two reasons: We spent a fortune on hospital bills and drugs during Dad's admission at the Korle Bu Hospital. Diseases like Stroke and Cancer are not covered under the National Health Insurance Scheme in Ghana, therefore a number of people die in Ghana due to their inability to afford the expensive drugs and hospital bills. Secondly, Coach Afranie always loved football, and youth football was his heart beat.

This is surely a cause worth supporting! Thank you and may God richly bless you for your support!
