“50 Cent”, (rap star Curtis Jackson) made visit to Horn of Africa, Somalia & Kenya, to see first hand impact of famine. Hosted by the United Nations food relief agency or World Food Program (WFP) 50 Cent last year made a public commitment to provide one billion meals for the hungry. “What I am seeing is devastating – these women and children have risked everything to come to this Somalia camp, just to get food. They need our help.” During his visit to the Kabasa refugee camp, Mr. Jackson saw women and children being screened for malnutrition, and visited a nearby school. Mr. Jackson also visited a school in a slum in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital, where he met children, many of them orphans. “To meet those kids was so inspiring. They have nothing, yet they are so positive and optimistic. I want to do my part so they get food and an education. I hope more people will join me to help end this devastating situation,” he said, reaffirming his determination to fight hunger in the region and raise awareness about this cause. As part of Mr. Jackson’s fundraising efforts, he is donating money to WFP from the sales of his new energy drink, Street King. For every unit sold, he has pledged to donate 10 cents, which covers the typical cost of a WFP meal.
