Sprint legend Usain Bolt has reportedly donated US $10 million dollars to help rebuild Haiti after the island was slapped by Hurricane Matthew this week, according to the Voice Online UK.
The donation which will be utilized through the Jamaican sprinter’s foundation was reportedly announced today after he traveled to Haiti to ascertain the damage caused by hurricane Matthew.
The donation will be used to rebuild homes after the devastation caused by the hurricane, which has destroyed some 3,200 homes in Haiti and displaced more than 15,000 people.
At least 800 people have died since Matthew made landfall in Haiti on Tuesday, October 4th, as a Category 4 hurricane.
An estimated 500,000 children live in the areas in the southern region most affected by Hurricane Matthew, UNICEF said in a statement.
UN officials said the hurricane is the country’s worst humanitarian crisis since the devastating 2010 earthquake.
