French Montana's efforts in Uganda was acknowledged at the annual Pencils of Promise Gala at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City, as he received the 2022 Innovator Award.
French raised more than $226 million for healthcare in Uganda, and the Budondo Suubi “Hope” Health Center, which is the region’s primary place for new and expectant mothers.
“MAKING MORE HISTORY FOR MY PEOPLE!” he wrote. “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.”
French Montana has been heavily involved with charitable efforts in the country, by donating $500,000 to the Suubi Center, and kicked off the “#Unforgettable Healthcare Campaign” with Global Citizen’s #2BSTRONG and Mama Hope.
“Me coming from Morocco in North Africa, I feel like it should be a soft spot for anyone that has a mother or a child,” French said. “I think that’s got to be one of the worst things, not having the right healthcare. When I went to Uganda, I felt obligated to [help]. I feel like every woman and child deserves the right healthcare. It shouldn’t be a privilege, it should be a right.”
