Wyclef Jean took three young Haitian amputees to $1,000 shopping sprees at Kmart after flying them to the United States to receive critical medical care.

Earlier this month, the artist personally came out to welcome 17-year-olds Margarette Pierre and Chantal Mori, who each lost an arm, and eight-year-old Farah Maurice, who had her leg amputated, upon their arrival in New York.

On Tuesday, he gave them an extra special treat when they were allowed to pick out whatever their hearts desired at Kmart up to $1,000 apiece, courtesy of the retail chain.

“When you come from a country where you make $1 a day, giving them $1,000 is like giving them $10,000,” said Jean, a native of Haiti. “They need to know there are people like them and they’re normal. Today they’re not thinking, ‘I don’t have a leg.’ They’re just being kids, and they’re happy.”

The trio, whose trips are sponsored by Yele Haiti and the Global Medical Relief Fund (GMRF), will be flown to Philadelphia on June 3 to undergo complimentary treatment for their prosthetic limbs at Shriners Hospitals for Children.
