William Levy knows what it’s like to be deprived when you’re a child, as happened to him in Cuba. For that reason, he wanted to give back to life for the opportunities he gave him and decided to take care of 36 children from different states of Mexico such as Yucatan, Veracruz and Edomex.

“I started to take care of 12 children in the State of Mexico, 12 in Mérida and 12 in Veracruz. I try to share with others and what better way than with these children who need it”, he told the Excelsior newspaper in 2009.

The Cuban interpreter took charge of the education and feeding of the minors through the Mexican foundation “Un kilo de Ayuda”.

“I went through difficult times in my life and today that I can help, it would be silly not to, it’s the least I can give back for the blessings I’ve received,” Levy explained.

“My help consists of paying everything that these children need monthly in terms of food, education and also health,” he added.

Not satisfied with the financial help he gave the little ones, William also established a bond of affection between him and the children: “It’s not about supporting them financially, I want to be in contact with them, give them affection, pamper them and not make them a duty more in my agenda”, clarified the Cuban.

One of the reasons why Levy supports these children is because of some memories of his childhood since he lived poverty firsthand and often had nothing to eat.

“I see myself reflected in them, I was a malnourished child and I always dreamed that someone would come and help me and now that life has given me so many beautiful things and that I can give these little ones the security that they will have a good diet, no I want to stop doing it,” he explained.



William Levy visited El Hormiguero de Antena 3, a program that, according to Pablo Motos, was forced to “reinforce security, because we don’t know if things are going to go away,” due to the hubbub that the actor aroused.

In the program, the Cuban artist revealed how he experienced his son’s accident while recording “Coffee with the aroma of a woman.” Learn about the story by clicking here.
