Renowned artist The Weeknd, born Abel Tesfaye, has once again demonstrated his commitment to humanitarian causes by contributing $2 million from his XO Humanitarian Fund to support the United Nations World Food Programme’s (WFP) efforts in Gaza.

The generous donation will be directed towards purchasing over 1,500 metric tons of wheat flour, a critical staple in the region. This amount is estimated to yield more than 18 million loaves of bread, which in turn can sustain approximately 157,000 individuals for an entire month.

This isn’t the first time The Weeknd has stepped up to aid those in need. In December 2023, he donated $2.5 million to the WFP, which was allocated towards providing emergency meals for over 173,000 people in Gaza, ensuring sustenance for two weeks during a critical period.

Corinne Fleischer, the director for the Middle East, North Africa, and Eastern Europe Region at the WFP, expressed gratitude for The Weeknd’s continued support. She emphasized the significance of his contributions, particularly amid the looming threat of famine in Gaza. Fleischer noted that The Weeknd’s generosity would provide vital relief to thousands of Palestinian families grappling with the harsh realities of hunger daily.
