According to Rolling Stone, on January 16,the hip-hop mogul announced that he will be donating a generous amount of $200,000 to the Suubi “Hope” Health Center in Uganda.

Speaking to the publication, Diddy 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. In addition to passing the torch to French, I’m showing my support for the work he is doing in Uganda.”

Rapper French Montana launched the healthcare initiative after filming the music video for his hit track Unforgettable, in Uganda. The initiative is a partnership with non-profits Mama Hope and Global Citizen, which caters to improving women’s maternity healthcare.

This includes, “building out the maternal healthcare facilities – a prenatal care clinic, a birth house, a new ambulance and more.” In Diddy’s PSA for Mama Hope, he states,

“It’s important to give back, it’s important to be an agent of change. That’s a core part of being down with the Bad Boy family.”

Diddy has donated $100,000 through Ciroc French Vanilla, and is planning to match the donation with his own personal gift of $100,000. He joins French Montana and The Weeknd, who have each donated $100,000 to the Mama Hope organisation.
