Cris Cyborg recently traveled to Uganda to participate in a human outreach project with Fight For The Forgotten a charity organized by MMA fighter Justin Wren aimed at helping bring hope and community change for the Batwa Pygmy Tribes.
Cyborg who traveled to Uganda, was able to see the two water wells which Cyborg Nation helped provide for on new land that Fight For The Forgotten has been able to secure with local partners and the Ugandan government which will be given to the Batwa refugees currently living in a camp provided by the government.
While on location Cyborg got an opportunity to visit an orphanage for the Batwa which is providing two meals a day for the kids, education, and housing. It was an emotional experience for Cris as she was confronted face to face with the daily struggle many of these children are living with. Check out the full episode below
