The Toronto emcee discusses his trip to the Horn of Africa.
Kardinal Offishall’s humanitarian mission to the Horn of Africa began airing earlier this week on Canada’s CTV’s etalk as part of a four-segment series.
“This trip changed my life,” says Kardinal, according to cnw.ca. “I saw kids along the Kenya/Somalia border, five years and under, with nothing to eat, no water and not even a place to live.”
The Toronto emcee went to Africa last month with a team of World Vision staff whose work took place in the famine zone of the region.
“I got to know a much different man beyond the Rap star,” said World Vision President and CEO Dave Toycen. “Kardinal cares about kids and wants to help us save the lives of children.”
