Haiti’s favorite son Wyclef Jean was among the first celebs who reach out and called for help the victims of the earthquake that shook Port-au-Prince last Tuesday, but currently he’s being bombed by rumors saying his charity has faulty accounting practices.
His charity, The Wyclef Jean Foundation, Inc., has already raised as much as $2 million to help his brothers in Haiti.
“It is impossible for me to even comprehend the recent attacks on my character and the integrity of my foundation,” he released a statement. “The fact that these attacks come as we are mobilized to meet the greatest human tragedy in the history of Haiti only serves to perplex me even further.”
The Grammy award-winning artist has since been calling his fans as well as all the people around the globe to help the Haitians, which they can do so by sending $5 to his foundation by means of sending the SMS “Yele” to 501501.
Among the plans of his foundation is to airlift medical supplies, Clif Bars and water to Haiti via FedEx, says foundation head Hugh Locke.
