Through Khaled and Nicole’s non-profit organization, We The Best Foundation, and in partnership with Direct Relief, they provided 10,000 masks, gloves and dozens of PPE kits to healthcare workers in Miami and New York.
Moreover, they partnered with Simple Human to provide thousands of hand sanitizers and hands-free soap dispensers to communities across the country.
Khaled’s efforts were reportedly inspired by a friend's brother who works at a Brooklyn hospital.
Khaled alerted his fans of his efforts on Instagram. And in a statement released by We The Best Foundation to PR Newswire, the 44-year-old DJ said,
"By partnering with Direct Relief, Nicole and I are able to reach the medical staff who are most at risk in local hospitals in New York and Miami. It's important to us to take care of those who take care of us.”

Khaled’s efforts were reportedly inspired by a friend’s brother who works at a Brooklyn hospital. It is also in response to the alarming rate of Coronavirus cases in New York and Florida. Khaled’s family lives in Miami.
As of March 31, New York recorded 66,400 confirmed cases of COVID-19 while Florida had 6,300 cases. The countrywide total is expected to spike in the coming weeks prompting the government to extend social distancing measures until April 30.
Apart from helping his community, Khaled has been doing his part self-isolating at home. He recently revealed that after taking a break from the gym, he was back working out and manages to do so twice a day.
Khaled admitted his workouts have been lifting his spirits. He also added that he often engages in Zoom video conferencing and Netflix binges during his downtime.
Khaled has also been bonding with his children. A photo he shared last month revealed him with 3-year-old Asahd and 2-month-old Aalam. The proud father posed with his two boys inside their home.
In a more recent post, he shared a clip of a football game between him and Asahd on their lawn. It's evident time at home is well spent by Khaled with his family.
