Diddy Donates $200K To French Montana’s “Mama Hope” & “Global Citizen” Charities
The highest paid star in hip-hop, Sean “Diddy” Combs, is never too big to open up his wallet for his fellow man.
Bad Boy Records impresario Sean “Diddy” Combs recently donated $200K to the Suubi “Hope” Health Care Center in Uganda. The weighty donation will go towards improving women’s maternity healthcare. For that we have French Montana to thank. The Moroccan MC inspired Diddy to join the movement after starting the initiative in partnership with Mama Hope and Global Citizen following the filming of his “Unforgettable” music video.
“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 said in a statement to 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 Mama Hope, I am matching the donation so that our stories and successes can benefit as many people as possible.”
Overall, with contributions from French Montana and The Weeknd, the $400K from all three parties will go toward maternity facilities, including a prenatal care clinic, a birthing house, ambulance and more. “It’s important to give back and be an agent of change,” Diddy said in an Instagram post on Jan. 16. “That’s a core part of being down with the BAD BOY FAMILY!”
