Fat Joe Joins Forces With Zoey Dollaz To Bring Aid To Haiti

Fat Joe and Zoey Dollaz have teamed up with Food For The Poor to bring some much-needed humanitarian aid to the embattled Haiti.

According to a press release shared with HipHopDX on Thursday (May 2), the partnership will establish a relief fund, which will provide aid and essential supplies to families affected by the country’s most recent humanitarian crisis spurred by nearly three years of civil unrest in the island nation.

According to Axios, Prime Minister Ariel Henry stepped down from his position as of April 25, in response to the increasing incidents of violence in the island nation. Henry had assumed power following the assassination of then President Jovenel Moïse in July 2021.

Under his leadership, Haiti’s capital of Port-au-Prince has seen escalating gang violence that came to a head on March 4, following a prison break at Haiti’s National Penitentiary — which, per CNN, facilitated the escape of about 3500 of the facility’s 3687 inmates.

The country’s leaders declared a state of emergency, which eventually led to Henry’s resignation and the slow process of installing a provisional council to work towards stabilizing Port-au-Prince.

At press time, however, the seaport and international airport in the capital remain closed. And while smaller airports in the cities of Cap-Haitien to the north and Les Cayes to the south are open, the import of commercial goods and delivery of humanitarian aid have been severely impacted.

“My heart goes out to all the Haitians that are suffering because of this humanitarian crisis,” the Terror Squad leader said, in a statement. “Many of my close friends are Haitian, so we’ve been watching this tragedy unfold and exploring the most efficient and effective ways to provide meaningful support. All relief items and financial contributions will go directly to Food For The Poor, so they can safely distribute the donations directly to the families in need.”

Fat Joe has established an Amazon Wish List of essential items that will be sent directly to Haiti, including baby formula, diapers, and wipes.

In recent years, the Bronx native has established himself as quite the activist.

Last month, he paid tribute to his son while continuing his efforts to raise awareness about neurodivergent children and the conditions they have to actively negotiate.

On April 2, the Terror Squad boss shared a photograph of the World Autism Awareness Day logo along with a throwback photo of his 33-year-old namesake, Joseph Jr.

“WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY Joey this one’s for you [blue hearts emojis],” he wrote in the caption.

And back in June 2023, the “Lean Back” hitmaker posted a photo of himself shirtless while holding Joseph Jr. to declare his “unconditional love” for his son.

50 Cent subsequently hopped in the comments section and praised his former foe by writing: “This the coolest picture you ever posted joe. On some real shit!”

The CDC defines the condition as a developmental disability stemming from variations in brain function. Individuals with ASD may exhibit unique behaviors, communication patterns, social interactions, and learning styles compared to others.
