A humanitarian, a child rights advocate who believed in the potential of every child, Platini was the bedrock of my work in Ghana for many years, bringing Hope for Ghana to the level it has reached in Africa, guiding me, and building the team that still faithfully works with me. Platini left this world much too early but leaves behind a legacy of improving the human condition. Member of Parliament Hon. Bernard Ahiafor and I met 2 years ago with a village hungry for ...
