The humanitarian efforts that began in 2017 with French Montana enlisting the Triplets Ghetto Kids for his “Unforgettable” video have come full circle, as a Ugandan hospital that French's philanthropic efforts have helped is now reportedly operating.
TMZ reports the facility is “up and running” and “equipped to take care of 300,000 people.” TMZ didn’t name the specific facility, but Complex and Newsweek have previously reported French, Diddy, and The Weeknd donated significant sums in coordination with the Mama Hope Foundation to aid a Ugandan hospital equipped to care for 300,000 patients. Per the Mama Hope Foundation website, the facility is named the Suubi Health Clinic.
“Thanks to French Montana, The Weeknd, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Ciroc, construction on the new building started right away,” notes a report on Mamahope.org.
French Montana’s work with Suubi Health Clinic and Mama Hope Foundation earned him the distinction of becoming hip-hop’s first Global Citizen Ambassador. On the commercial side, “Unforgettable” became French Montana’s first No. 1 single on Billboard’s “Hot Rap Songs” chart. The Swae Lee-assisted track has since been streamed over 646 million times via YouTube while being certified as five-times platinum by the RIAA.
Per Denis Muwanguzi, who also worked with French, Diddy, and The Weeknd to help raise funds for the Suubi Health Clinic, the facility expanded its patient capacity from 56,000 to 300,000 in roughly one year.
