Uganda is fast becoming the attention of many celebrities in the United States and we are wondering why. Snoop is interested in relocating here, French Montana has a strong attachment to both the Hope Health Center and the Ghetto kids. Even film star Forest Whitaker sneaks into the country every now and then. Now another celebrity has shown interest in establishing a connection with Uganda.
Sean Combs, alias P Diddy an American rapper has announced plans to donate $200,000 (approximately Shs700 million) to the Unforgettable healthcare campaign, which is expanding and improving the Suubi “Hope” Health Center in Uganda.
The initiative was started by rapper 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 told 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 famous RnB crooner The Weekend who donated $100,000 each to Mama Hope’s efforts.
