French Montana has been working in the dark to enhance the Ugandan healthcare system, but his actions haven’t gone unnoticed.
In the annual Pencils of Promise Gala at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City last week, the Moroccan-American rapper got honored for his efforts and received the 2022 Innovator Award for his humanitarian in Uganda.
The Gala celebrated Montana for helping to boost more than $226 million for the healthcare system in the African country, as well as sustaining some centers such as the Budondo Suubi “Hope” Health Center, the region’s main place of healthcare for new and pregnant women, as well as their babies.
French Montana celebrated his award on his Instagram page while sharing photos of him with his silverware at the gala.
French Montana has been providing all kind of help for Uganda ever since filming the video for his hit track “Unforgettable” featuring Swae Lee in 2018.
Since then, Montana has been seriously involved with generous efforts in this african country, such as getting the Triple Ghetto Kids — who performed the dance in the video to the United States.
In 2018, French contributed $500,000 to the Suubi Center, an underfunded motherhood and children’s health hospital in Uganda. He also started the “#Unforgettable Healthcare Campaign” with Global Citizen’s #2BSTRONG and the United States-based non-profit organization ''Mama Hope''.
