The Weeknd Donates 18 Million Loaves Of Bread To Gaza

Back in December, The Weeknd donated 4 million meals in Gaza in partnership with the UN World Food Programme. Today, it has been announced that he’s making another generous donation.

The singer is allocating a further $2 million from his XO Humanitarian Fund to provide 1,500 metric tones of fortified wheat flour in the form of 18 million loaves of bread to Gaza, which can help feed 157,000 Palestinians for a month. This marks $4.5 million in total that The Weeknd has donated to Gaza. He also calls on fans to join in with his support, which they can do through the WFP here.

“We are very grateful for Abel’s continued support as WFP works to respond to the urgent hunger crisis in Gaza,” said Barron Segar, President and CEO, World Food Program USA. “Hunger is a human-made problem, and as such, it is solvable. We have enough food in this world to feed everyone; all we need is the funding and safe access to make it happen. Thanks to Abel’s designation, families and children will receive the food they so desperately need.”
