50 Cent Travels To Somalia To Help Feed The Poor [Pics Inside]

The WFP reports:

Jackson flew yesterday to Dolow in Somalia’s southern border region, where thousands of women and children have taken refuge at Kabasa camp for displaced people fleeing from drought and conflict. He saw women and children being screened for malnutrition, and visited a nearby school.

"What I am seeing is devastating -- these women and children have risked everything to come to this Somalia camp, just to get food,” he said. “They need our help.”

Jackson today visited a school in a Nairobi slum 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.

In September, Jackson made a public commitment to provide one billion meals for the hungry. As part of his fundraising drive, he is donating to WFP money from the sales of a new energy drink, called Street King. For every unit sold, he has pledged to donate 10 U.S. cents, which covers the typical cost of food in a WFP meal.

WFP provides nourishing meals and snacks to improve concentration in the classroom and to encourage families to enrol and keep their children in school.

It's a pitty to see that some how stupid and damn some people like @Mukup1 and Dx253 are. You are busy making crap comments toward what 50 is doing for these starving people? Are you your heads functioning properly? Your comments shows how ignorants you are, you have never been outside the USA, that's why you don't even know how the exchange rates of a dollar in these countries. Donating 10 US Cents for every unit sold is a lot of money to feed people in African countries. They say a half loaf of bread is better than none. WFP are smart people not damn like you two and they have been doing the WFP program for a very long time, incase you morons don't know. The money 50 is providing is quite alot out there that's why his vision has been welcomed by the WFP top dogs. So shut your stinking mouths and try your best to get your rotten asses out of the US for once and see how life is on the other side of the World! Idiots! All the best 50.
