Kofi Ntsiful Rehab & Education Fund.

My name is Michael Barketey, a fellow Ghanaian based in the US. I was touched by the story of Kofi Ntsiful a few months ago when Mr Adu Gyamfi broke the story about a child who has been abandoned by his father because of skin rashes. After watching a video of him crawling on the floor, with his entire body covered is scabs, I thought of my own children then decided to do something. So I task a friend in Ghana to locate this youngman and the journalist Mr Adu Gyamfi. My goal is to share the story with a few friends of mine in order to raise money to support him. After a month of searching for him, we were able to locate both My Adu Gyamfi who is now Kofi's custodian and he shared with us Kofis current situation. We were overjoyed to know that he has been rescued and is doing well. But Kofi's story doesn't end there. He would need years of rehabilitation and an opportunity to attend school like every child, and eventually fufil his dream to become a pilot. This GoFundMe was set up to raise enough money to invest in a college education fund which Kofi can withdraw when its time for him to attend college. In the interim a few of us will support Kofi with whatever we can to make life comfortable so he can focus on getting better and enjoying life as a child. I encourage all of you to join me to make this dream a reality. The true essence of any being, is the smile you leave on the faces of anyone who crosses your path. Make somebody smile today.
