Sacramento Kings rookie and former Wildcat Skal Labissiere hasn’t been home to Haiti since coming over to the United States seven years ago, Skal was back this week to host a basketball camp. Labissiere announced last month that he will host 50 of the top high school basketball players and coaches in his native Port-au-Prince for his first Camp S.K.A.L. ( Skills, Knowledge and Life ) basketball clinic July 19-21. Read more about the story here.
According to our source, Skal donated over $50,000 worth of equipment to help Haiti in future natural disasters to the red cross of Haiti. One include a drone which can detect heart beats underneath as much as 30ft of rubble. This was an important donation to Skal since he is a victim of the earthquake.
Here are a few photos from the camp.

Labissière partnered with Reach Your Dream, a non-profit organization promoting spiritual awareness, self-confidence, and innovative thinking for future generations in communities throughout the world. Reach Your Dream helped Labissière relocate to the United States before high school to pursue his educational and basketball goals.
“Without the good people of Reach Your Dream, I wouldn’t be where I am today,” added Labissière. “It’s only fitting, that we work together on Camp S.K.A.L. to provide similar opportunities to the future basketball stars of Haiti.”
