United States rapper, Diddy donates $200k to charity in Uganda
By Patricia Uyeh,
United States rapper and business mogul, Diddy has just showed he is not only all about making money.
The rapper has just announced plans to donate $200,000 to the Unforgettable healthcare campaign- which is an initiative by French Montana in partnership with the non-profit Mama Hope and Global Citizen after he filmed the video for his hit “Unforgettable” in Kampala, Uganda.
“I’ve always said my purpose is to inspire and empower the next generation to become great leaders – and to honour their hustle along the way. In addition to passing the torch to French, I’m showing my support for the work he is doing in Uganda. Not only will Ciroc be donating $100,000 to support the organization Mama Hope, I am matching the donation so that our stories and successes can benefit as many people as possible.”
Diddy’s donation comes after contributions from both French Montana and the Weeknd who donated $100,000 to Mama Hope’s efforts.
The $400,000 generated will be used to build the maternal healthcare facilities – a prenatal care clinic, a birth house, a new ambulance and more – at the Suubi Health Center in Budondo, Uganda.
