Beyond the commitment to maintaining law and order, Ghanaian policeman Corporal Simon Agbeko had a compassionate heart that often led him to go above and beyond the call of duty.

Corporal Simon Agbeko and Emmanuel Ohene

One humid afternoon, Corporal Simon Agbeko walked to a house in Ablekuma to a 29-year-old man named Emmanuel Ohene struggling to breathe.

His raspy coughs echoed through the air, catching the attention of passersby.

Corporal Simon Agbeko's instincts kicked in and rushed towards Ohene, who was visibly distressed and pale.


Ohene, barely able to speak, pointed to his throat and gestured that he couldn't breathe or talk properly.

Touched by Ohene's story, Simon felt an overwhelming desire to make a difference. Determined to help, he used his connections within the community to mobilize support for Ohene's medical treatment.

Simon gave the patient GH¢2,500 to pay his hospital bill.

With the financial support secured, Ohene received the necessary medical attention. The treatment brought relief to his strained throat, and slowly but surely, he began to regain his strength.


Corporal Simon Agbeko's selfless act echoed through the streets of Accra, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of the people, and reminding everyone that even in the face of hardship, kindness and unity could bring about miracles.

He has called on Ghanaians to donate to save the man from severe throat cancer. One can donate to save Emmanuel Ohene on MTN number, 0533775286
