American rapper, Diddy has announced plans to donate $200,000 to the Unforgettable healthcare campaign dedicated to expanding and improving the Suubi “Hope” Health Center in Uganda. This is after fellow American rapper, French Montana started the initiative in partnership with the non-profit Mama Hope and Global Citizen after he filmed the video for his hit “Unforgettable” in Kampala.
Diddy made this announcement via a video where he said: “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.” He continued by saying “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 is to be added to contributions from French Montana and Canadian artiste, The Weekend, both of whom donated $100,000 each to Mama Hope’s efforts.
The $400,000 is to go towards building maternal healthcare facilities – a prenatal care clinic, a birth house, a new ambulance and more – at the Suubi Health Center, which is to serve a rural population in Budondo, Uganda.
