MEETING: US Rapper French Montana and Uganda's Ambassador to the US Adonia Ayebare in talks to help Ugandan mothers and children

US rapper French Montana was in Uganda in April for the shooting of a music video for his song, ‘Unforgettable’. However, the Pearl of Africa has remained at his heart ever since.

First, he took the Ghetto Kids to perform with him on a big stage at the BET awards. This was followed by his donation of $100,000 (about Shs350 million) to a Ugandan charity group, Mama Hope Organization.

And it appears that’s not the end as Uganda has remained unforgettable to him; and on Tuesday Montana met with the Uganda Ambassador to the US, Adonia Ayebare to discuss how he can help to improve the health of Ugandan mothers and kids.

French Montana is no stranger to helping those in need. In December of 2015, his boss, Diddy gave him a bonus of US$1 million dollars (about Shs3.5billion)! Instead of buying a crazy expensive car or going on a luxurious trip, Montana decided to donate that money to a charity that will help educate children.

And in Uganda’s case, Montana wants the country to achieve the target recently set by the African Union.

In January 2017, African Union leaders agreed to get back on track to reach universally agreed on health targets, strengthen health systems, and ensure every child has access to vaccines by 2020.

Every day, over 800 women die in childbirth, of which 99% live in the developing world. And one in five African children lack access to routine immunizations.

With too many children and mothers in Africa still missing out on the critical vaccines and healthcare they need to survive.
