Home is where the heart is for rapper French Montana who recently funded two preschool classrooms in his home country of Morocco.
According to TMZ, the 33-year-old from Casablanca, Morocco teamed up with the Sabae School of Fida-Mers Sultan district to ensure that the school has the supplies and resources it needs to be successful for the next few years.
Montana also committed to helping build a hospital in Uganda and raised a half million dollars to the project. The hospital is expected to open March 2019 and it will service more than 400 villages in the North African country and treat more than 300,000 women, PEOPLE reports.
The 33-year-old rapper, migrated to the US when he was just 13, but he only became a US citizen recently, the outlet reports.
Earlier this year Montana also teamed with Adam Levine to do a remix of his 2017 song “Famous” to benefit the Suubi Center, a maternity and children’s clinic in Uganda.
“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,” Montana said in an interview with CNN. “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.”
Thank you @TMZ for talking about the work being done to help my homeland Morocco!
