Travis Scott Honors The Victims Of the Astroworld Tragedy

The rapper announced the launch of Project HEAL, a “multi-tier, long-term series of community-focused philanthropy and investment efforts”.
Project HEAL’s launch comes four months after what officials described as a “mass casualty incident” at Travis’ concert in Houston.
Four months after the tragedy at his Astroworld Festival left 10 people dead, Travis Scott has released a statement vowing to “always honour the victims”.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the rapper announced the launch of Project HEAL, a “multi-tier, long-term series of community-focused philanthropy and investment efforts”.
Scott shared more details about the initiative in a lengthy caption on Instagram.
“Over the past few months, I’ve been taking the time and space to grieve, reflect and do my part to heal my community. Most importantly, I want to use my resources and platform moving forward towards actionable change,” he wrote.
The Astroworld artist – who shares 4-year-old daughter Stormi and 1-month-old son Wolf with Kylie Jenner – added that this would be “a lifelong journey for me and my family.”
The 30-year-old explained that he feels he needs to “step up in times of need” given his position in the spotlight. Consequently, he and his team created Project HEAL to develop solutions that will “make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be”.
I will always honour the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever.
Project HEAL’s launch comes after what officials described as a “mass casualty incident” at Travis’ concert in Houston.
The 10 victims aged 9 to 27 years old were essentially crushed to death in the crowd surrounding the stage. Another 300 people were injured among the audience of 50 000 people.
