Beyonce Visited Haiti for Humanitarian Mission, Bailed Out Baltimore and Ferguson Protestors
Beyoncé paid a visit to Haiti to check out the progress made since an earthquake devastated the country five years ago.
Haiti U.N. mission spokeswoman Sophie Boutaud de la Combe said Saturday that Beyonce also was able to “meet some of the people who were affected by” by the 2010 disaster in the impoverished Caribbean country.
Beyoncé sported her charity’s BEYGOOD logo on her shirt as she toured such areas as as Port-au-Prince.
De la Combe said the American singer, a 20-time Grammy winner, visited Haiti with Valerie Amos, the United Nations’ humanitarian affairs chief and emergency relief coordinator.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé and Jay Z have allegedly been quietly sending thousands of dollars to help those arrested during Ferguson and Baltimore protests.
dream hampton, a writer and activist who worked with the rapper on his 2010 memoir Decoded, made the revelations in a series of tweets which were deleted but captured by hip-hop magazine Complex first.
Among the tweets: “When we needed money for bail for Baltimore protesters, I … hit Jay up, as I had for Ferguson [and he] wired tens of thousands [of dollars].”
She also tweeted Jay Z and his wife, Beyonce, sent a “huge check” to support the “Black Lives Matter” movement that surged through America after the Ferguson police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
