French Montana’s “Unforgettable” initiative just received backing from a notable supporter. The Weeknd has chipped in $100,000 to the cause.
French started the campaign after he was inspired during a trip to Uganda. He was there to shoot the video for his track “Unforgettable” and visit with the Triplets Ghetto Kids, whose YouTube videos he had seen and enjoyed.
In Uganda, he visited the Suubi Health Center. The center’s work inspired him to help raise funds to provide maternity supplies, premature incubators, beds, cribs, a blood bank, and more. He took action on the inspiration and has encouraged other prominent figures to do the same.
The Weeknd’s donation will allow Suubi to complete the construction of the first floor of the maternity clinic. Suubi will also receive funds to pursue technologies that will help save lives of women who are going through difficult pregnancies and births.
According to a press release, the two musicians’ donations will expand the center’s reach from 56,000 to an expected 260,000.
