Malcolm Frazier Appeadu, the Director of the GFA Foundation, made a compassionate visit to the former Black Satellites and Black Meteors goalkeeper, William Essu, who has been battling illness.

 

 

The purpose of this visit was twofold: to check on Essu’s well-being and to convey warm wishes for his swift recovery.

 

 

During the meeting at Essu’s residence in Cape Coast, he shared the story of his illness, which resulted in him missing out on the Black Meteors AFCON squad. He also described the challenging five months he has endured.

 

 

On behalf of the GFA Foundation, the Director presented William Essu with a cash donation of GHS10,000. This financial assistance is intended to support his medical expenses and other associated costs. The Director conveyed, “This is our way of assisting you in your recovery.”

 

 

In response, William Essu, the former Under 23 player, expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the GFA and the GFA Foundation for their financial support and the care they have shown him.

 

 

Representing the family, Alexander Essu extended their appreciation to the leadership of the Football Association and the Board of Trustees of the Foundation. He also wished them success in their future endeavors.

 

 

He noted that since his brother resumed treatment two days ago, there has been a steady improvement in his condition. The family disclosed that William is currently undergoing a combination of herbal treatment and periodic hospital visits to monitor his progress through laboratory tests.

 

 

The Director of the Foundation assured them that the GFA is in communication with the Ministry of Youth and Sports to ensure that William Essu receives the bonus owed to him and the last Under 23 qualifying team.

 

 

William Essu was a vital member of the National Under 23 Black Meteors Team that secured qualification for the CAF U23 AFCON.

 

 

The GFA Foundation serves as the Football Association’s social investment and sustainability management structure. Operating under the motto “GFA CARES,” the Foundation has recently collaborated with the Ghana Tourism Authority for a blood donation drive and partnered with Soccer for Dreamers and Goals for Flow organizations to promote menstrual health and hygiene, especially among female footballers.
