The Weeknd giving back - Abel Tesfaye donates USD 100,000 to health center in Uganda
The Ethiopian Canadian artiste made the donation to the facility in Budondo, Uganda after finding out about French Montana’s work with the health center, reports E! News.

The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) was inspired to support the center after learning of his friend French Montana’s work with Global Citizen and Mama Hope to help raise awareness for Suubi and the people of Uganda.

Montana also donated $100,000 to Suubi and launched an online campaign called #Unforgettable that has helped fund a blood bank, premature incubators, cribs and other maternity supplies.

The Weeknd’s donation enabled Suubi to complete construction of the first floor of the maternity clinic and increase its capacity of serving 56,000 people to 260,000 people.
