French Montana Receives Recognition for Raising $226 Million For Uganda Healthcare and Education

Bronx, NY-raised Hip-Hop artist, French Montana was recently given an award for his fundraising efforts to help people in Africa.

According to Complex, the No Stylist rapper was honored last week when he accepted the Innovator Award at the 2022 Pencils Of Promise Gala on Oct. 20. The recording artist was recognized for his efforts in raising money to help people in Uganda.

Montana was responsible for helping to raise a total of $226 million. He raised the funds to contribute to healthcare and education in Uganda. The artist, who is originally from Morrocco has also given support to the Budondo Suubi “Hope” Health Center. It’s the source of healthcare for new and pregnant women as well as their newborn babies.

“MAKING MORE HISTORY FOR MY PEOPLE ! Thank you @pencilsofpromise for honoring me with the Innovator Award at last night’s gala. ✏️ Healthcare and education is a fundamental part of our human rights and should be accessible across the globe. I’m grateful for PoP acknowledging my work in maternal healthcare in Africa. PoP is doing groundbreaking work globally to keep kids in school and make sure they have a safe environment to learn. @itsadambraun @kaileescales
