First Lady Donates $20,000 To Ailing Pencil Artist, Emmanuel Apraku (Ray)

First lady of the Republic of Ghana, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, on Thursday, August 20, 2020 contributed an amount of $20,000 towards the treatment of a ‘dying’ pencil artist, Emmanuel Apraku, otherwise known as Ray.

The amount is to help cover the £40,000 needed to treat Emmanuel Apraku from the liver disease he’s battling with.

A tweet on Ray’s twitter handle announced that “The First Lady, Her Excellency Rebecca Akufo-Addo, has donated $20,000 to help cover the cost of the amount needed for Emmanuel Apraku's treatment. We wish him a speedy recovery God bless you First lady and all those who helped and are helping.”

A gofundme account which was set up on Wednesday to raise $55,000 to support Emmanuel has also raised $52,598 as at 12noon Thursday.

Meanwhile, other celebrities have taken to their social media platforms to solicit for funds for the talented young man who needs £40,000 to undergo emergency surgery.
