The video clip shows a fully-constructed building that will serve as staff quarters for doctors, nurses and other health workers. Rodgers also provided a look at construction on a building that will service nearly 300,000 people.
“I just wanted to show you what you’ve been able to help build,” she says in the video. “This is the staff quarters where all of the doctors and nurses and health workers are going to be able to live. Where before, they were about five miles away. And then also, what we have happening here is the extension that wasn’t built two weeks ago. And soon it will look just like the staff quarters. And it will be plastered. And it will have a roof in the next two weeks. And then the services here will be able to reach 286,000 people. And so, I just wanted you to know how much it means to me that you decided to come to this beautiful community and bring healthcare to all of these people.”

In his caption, the Bronx rhymer gave a shout out to The Weeknd, an artist who also donated $100,000 to the Suubi Health Center. The crooner made his donation in June after being motivated by French’s act of charity.
