Shenseea Provides Aid to Hurricane Beryl Victims in Jamaica

This weekend, GRAMMY® Award-nominated international Jamaican pop star Shenseea returned to her hometown of St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, to assist those severely impacted by Hurricane Beryl. The powerful Category 4 storm struck on July 3, bringing fierce winds and heavy rain, causing significant damage across the southeastern Caribbean. Jamaica was particularly hard-hit, with at least seven fatalities reported and nearly 500 residents displaced.

Shenseea and Major Marketing, Honey Bun Ja, Lasco iCool Water, Grace Foods, Digicel, LP Azar, and Stoplight Wholesale mobilized to support her fellow Jamaicans during this crisis. Accompanied by her son, Rajeiro Lee, Shenseea visited St. Elizabeth, one of Jamaica’s largest parishes, distributing essential tarpaulins and food packages to 300 residents.

The artist connected with families affected by the hurricane, offering encouragement and solidarity. Her efforts served as a beacon of hope for those impacted, earning her a special commendation from Jamaican Government Senator Abka Fitz-Henley for her kindness.

Shenseea’s initiative highlights the importance of community support and resilience in natural disasters. Her presence and contributions provided much-needed relief and upliftment to the residents of St. Elizabeth during this challenging time.

The Weeknd To Help Provide 18 Million Loaves Of Bread To Families In Gaza

unnamed 19

United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) Goodwill Ambassador and multi-platinum global recording artist Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye is allocating another $2 million from his XO Humanitarian Fund toward WFP’s humanitarian response efforts in Gaza. This support will provide over 1,500 metric tons of fortified wheat flour, which can make over 18 million loaves of bread that can help feed more than 157,000 Palestinians for one month.

This funding builds on the original $2.5 million, equivalent to four million emergency meals, that Tesfaye directed to WFP’s Gaza response in December 2023. It provided 820 metric tons of food parcels to feed more than 173,000 Palestinians for two weeks. Additionally, Tesfaye is making an urgent appeal to fans, calling on them to give what they can by donating towards WFP’s efforts in Gaza. More than 1 million Palestinians face catastrophic levels of hunger across Gaza and need urgent support.

“With famine looming in Gaza, Abel’s generous support will provide vital relief for thousands of Palestinian families who battle the grip of hunger every day. We are tremendously grateful for his contribution, compassion and for his unwavering advocacy for WFP and the people of Palestine,” said WFP’s Director for the Middle East, North Africa and Eastern Europe Region, Corinne Fleischer.

WFP is providing desperately needed food to over a million people across Gaza each month and is working to re-activate collapsed food systems. Most food is distributed in central and southern Gaza, with food deliveries to the north increasing since March. Around 2,100 metric tons of food parcels and wheat flour have been brought into northern Gaza via land routes and an additional 45 metric tons have been airdropped. 

WFP distributes food in U.N. shelters, communities and make-shift camps, including ready-to-eat food, wheat flour and specialized nutritional products for children, as well as pregnant and nursing mothers. It also supports over 100 community kitchens and aims to provide 500,000 hot meals daily. WFP is helping bakeries become operational again, supplying four bakeries in the north and 12 bakeries in central and southern Gaza with wheat flour, fuel, yeast, salt and sugar.
