Rapper K’Naan Visits Somalia At The Height Of Its Devastating Famine

20110823-093206.jpgAt the height of a deadly famine, Somali-born rapper K’Naan took time off to visit his native country which has been ravaged by a famine brought on by drought and the inability for aid to reach those most devastated because of militant groups.

Forbes.com reports that the rapper, who now resides in Canada, visited Mogadishu and the city’s Banadir Hospital on Sunday (August 21).

“I came to Somalia to see the situation here and give any donation I have to the people and anything else available,” said the rapper, according to Forbes.com. “I will do all I can to help my people in Somalia.”

K’Naan’s visit over the weekend marks his first visit to Somalia in over two decades.

A report by MSNBC on August 5, 2011 states that 29,000 children under the age of five have died as a result of the famine.
