Kanye West Gifts Dozens of Yeezys to Ugandan Children

One day after gifting the president of Uganda with crisp white Yeezys, Kanye West decided to kick the giving up a notch.

While visiting the Uganda Women’s Effort to Save Orphans Children’s Village in Masulita with Kim Kardashian and eldest daughter North West today, the rapper-turned-designer handed out dozens of Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Triple White sneakers to kids.

West, who dressed in a neon yellow look complete with Yeezy 700 sneakers and a purple cap, took to his recently reactivated Twitter to post videos of Ugandan children dancing in the Triple Whites. He also showed off a plastic bag brimming with 350s.


Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian matched her husband in a casual neon outfit and unreleased Yeezy Boost 700 sneakers in mauve. North West, 5, donned a simple gray tank dress with a pint-sized version of the ultrapopular Yeezy Wave Runner 700 silhouette. She topped things off with a bold iridescent visor.

The day before, West met with Ugandan President Yoweri K. Museveni — who took to Twitter to thank Kanye for the Yeezys he presented him with — writing: “I thank Kanye for the gift of white sneakers. Enjoy your time in Uganda. It is the true Pearl of Africa.”
