Rapper and businessman, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs together with Ciroc have donated $200,000 to the Unforgettable healthcare campaign, to expand and improve the Suubi “Hope” Health Center in Uganda.

The initiative was started by rapper French Montana in partnership with the non-profit Mama Hope and Global Citizen after he filmed the video for his hit song “Unforgettable” in Kampala.

“I’ve always said my purpose is to inspire and empower the next generation to become great leaders – and to honor their hustle along the way,” Diddy tells Rolling Stone. “In addition to passing the torch to French, I’m showing my support for the work he is doing in Uganda. Not only will Ciroc be donating $100,000 to support the organization Mama Hope, I am matching the donation so that our stories and successes can benefit as many people as possible.”

“It’s important to give back, it’s important to be an agent of change,” Diddy says in a video PSA announcing his donation. “That’s a core part of being down with the Bad Boy family.” To that end, French Montana aims to continue his philanthropic efforts in Morocco next. That initiative will be linked to the release of his upcoming video for “Famous.”

Diddy’s donation follows contributions from both French Montana and singer the Weeknd, who both donated $100,000 each to Mama Hope’s efforts.

According to the report,  the $400,000 will go towards building the maternal healthcare facilities,  a prenatal care clinic, a birth house, a new ambulance and more at the Suubi Health Center, which serves a rural population in Budondo, Uganda.
