Wyclef Jean Hopeless About Students and Teachers in His Haitian School

January 21, 2010 (7:10 am) GMT
The former rapper of The Fugees thinks that all the students and teachers in the arts school of his Yele foundation might lose their lives after the massive tremor destroyed his homeland of Haiti.

is desperate for good news about the arts school his Yele foundation built in his native Haiti - because the entire site was crushed by an earthquake last week, January 12, and he fears all the students and teachers are dead. The Yele Center was less than a year old when it collapsed during the 7.0-magnitude earthquake, which shook Haiti, and Jean, who visited his homeland at the weekend, admits he fears the worst.

He says, "As of now... everyone passed away." He adds, "The idea of a school collapsing... and every kid in the school, including the teachers, just completely wiped out is unheard of."

The school was responsible for a special line of T-shirts, sold in Timberland stores across America. Jean explains, "These artists did these incredible T-shirts that were in Timberland stores all around the world. It was Haiti on a Timberland T-shirt."
