Nothing seems to be stopping Ray West, Kanye West's father, in his charitable pursuits. In fact, just several years ago, Ray helped set up the Good Water foundation in the Dominican Republic "to help victims of prostitution and corruption," per the Daily Mail.
"He's financing the work himself," Ray’s ex-girlfriend Brenda Bentley told the outlet on September 27. "He sells purified water and uses the profits to fund projects like healthcare for women," she added.
Daily Mail noted that Ray, a Black Panther Party member through the 1960s and '70s, was a highly regarded photojournalist in his prime. In fact, it was noted that shortly after Kanye West's birth in 1977, Ray rose to prominence for his portraits of civil rights activist Maya Angelou and former President Ronald Reagan.
Before purifying water for those in need in the Dominican Republic, Ray's journey toward better public health dates back to 2006. This was when he opened up the Good Water Store and Cafe in Lexington Park, Maryland.
