Incident Report Description

According to a news release issued by WFP today, 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.
Security was tight on Karanja road as 50 cent was passing to visit one of the schools in Kibera slums. He is on a campaign to provide 1 billion meals for the hungry in the horn of Africa.
“To meet the kids in Kibera 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.
