The young Jamaican act has been spreading awareness of world hunger and supporting the efforts of the United Nations’ World Food Programme (WFP) to end hunger worldwide. He has been placing special emphasis on the Horn of Africa, where a massive drought is causing a devastating famine.
A United Nations’ institution, WFP is committed to getting food where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict and natural disasters. Each year, on average, WFP feeds more than ninety million people in seventy countries. Stephenson joins others in the music business Christina Aguilera and 50 Cent in supporting this cause.
He has teamed up with Hiho Batik on the creation of the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Feed Africa!Ã¢â‚¬Â t-shirt. All proceeds from the sales benefit the WFP. The garment is one hundred per cent handmade in the batik tradition, making each one an individual work of art. The sale of one t-shirt raises enough money to feed forty children in the Horn of Africa.
