A GoFundMe account has been created for hospitalized former Ghana Premier League goal king Emmanuel Baffour to raise funds for his medical bills.
GHANASoccernet.com’s last checks revealed only US$ 300 donation has been received so far which is no way near the targeted US$ 50,000.
Late last month [August], Baffour was involved in a serious car crash in Maryland, USA and had to be extricated from his grey Nissan Sentra after being trapped inside of the vehicle.
It was later reported the former New Edubiase United and Mamelodi Sundowns had Priority 1 trauma (life-threatening)
Baffour has since been in critical condition at the Medstar Hospital in Washington D.C.
Hence this GoFundMe entitled simply 'Help with Emmanuel’s Medical and Rehab bills'.
The description reads: ‘‘Hi, my name is Marvin Sekyi. I am creating this fundraiser with humility in aid for Emmanuel Baffour’s medical and rehabilitation bills.

Emmanuel was found unconscious at the scene by local emergency responders and taken to the Medstar Hospital Washington DC where he is still on admission. He sustained a traumatic head injury, broken facial bones, multiple fractures and was in coma for 10 days.
