Diddy Donates $200,000 To Improve Maternal Healthcare In Uganda
Diddy has announced plans to donate $200,000 to the Unforgettable healthcare campaign, which is expanding and improving the Suubi “Hope” Health Center in Uganda. The initiative was started 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.
“I’ve always said my purpose is to inspire and empower the next generation to become great leaders – and to honor their hustle along the way,” Diddy tells Rolling Stone. “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 follows contributions from both French Montana and the Weeknd. Both artists donated $100,000 apiece to Mama Hope’s efforts. That $400,000 will go towards building out the maternal healthcare facilities – a prenatal care clinic, a birth house, a new ambulance and more – at the Suubi Health Center, which serves a rural population in Budondo, Uganda.
