He thanks "Eugene Kwabena Ackah", "Kojo Asarr Jnr" "Yaw Frempong" and "Horatio Sam-Aggrey" for helping him set up the GoFundMe page for the fundraiser.
Proff-Kumordzie also said, "A big thanks to Elikem Fiamavleone of the finest Lt Colonels in the army and Getty Kunde-Kwallinjam who worked diligently in the background".
