French Montana has donated $100,000 to the Mama Hope organization. Mama Hope is a charity that supports global entrepreneurship to help end extreme poverty in African countries. Montana took an enlightening trip to Uganda back in February of this year and felt like he had to do something to help. French Montana dedicated his ‘Unforgettable Dance Challenge’ on social media to Uganda and Mama Hope. Montana heard about Mama Hope through a mutual friend, and went to meet with the children at the Suubi Center. His donation will go towards building the Suubi Health Center, as well as funding local blood banks in Uganda.
French Montana was born and Morocco and raised in the South Bronx. Growing up in poverty himself Montana felt connected to the people of Uganda. His visit to Uganda was spawn by a YouTube video that he saw of three kids dancing to his hit single “Unforgettable”. Inspired by their joy in such impoverished conditions Montana planned a trip to Uganda and quickly connected with the people. He was given a tour of the Suubi Health Center and was made aware of the health care issues that the people of Uganda were facing. Being made aware gave Montana insight on ways that he could help expand the health care facility so that more people in Uganda with heath issues can be accommodated. French Montana has stepped up to the plate and donated $100,000 to the cause and is asking as many people that possibly can to follow suit and help the people of these impoverished countries.
French Montana says “I feel like sometimes God puts you in a platform where you’re supposed to help other people. That touched my heart when I went out there. I wanted to give them the shirt off my back and help as soon as possible, With having gone through living in poverty and being happy with nothing, they channel that through their dance moves and their energy.” Big ups to French.
