Kodak Black is lending a helping hand to Haitians affected by extreme gang violence in the country. Lawyer Bradford Cohen tells TMZ the rapper is sending 35,000 bottles of alkaline water to those cut off from food and water as a result of the nation’s crisis and has already spent $50,000 on shipping costs.
The money, Cohen explains, is specifically being used to ship the water from Florida to Haiti via cargo ships. The rapper will now keep in contact with government officials to ensure the bottles are delivered to their exact destinations.
According to the United Nations website, gang violence in Cité Soleil, Port-au-Prince, led to nearly 100 deaths and even more injuries over a five-day period last month. Many were forced to flee their homes and hide indoors for safety.
The wars have also resulted in fuel shortages, increased transportation costs, and exacerbated malnutrition for individuals who have been denied access to drinking water and food.
Cohen says Kodak is calling for an end to the fighting. The labels on the bottles sent to Haiti, he adds, read “LAST” as the rapper hopes this is the final time Haitians will ever have to go without water.
Kodak’s previous efforts to help the island include donations to food banks and orphanages to assist in getting Haitians health care.
