Kanye West is on a mission to give back during his trip to Uganda.
After a meeting with Ugandan President Yoweri K Museveni with wife Kim Kardashian Weston Monday, the rapper visited hundreds of children at the UWESO Children’s Village in the town of Masulita, The Blast reports.
While there, he gifted the kids his newest Yeezy sneaker — the Cream YEEZY Boost 350 V2. The shoe retailed for $220 when it launched last month.
The UWESO, otherwise known as the Uganda Women’s Effort to Save Orphans, is home in Masulita that provides residential housing for neglected children in the country. The village also serves as a rehabilitation center for children living on the streets. Uganda’s gross national income is reported at $1820, according to the World Bank’s database.
Clips of West, 41, and Kardashian West, 37, surfaced on social media that showed the stars digging through multiple bags filled with sneakers and handing them out to the overjoyed children.
