Kim Kardashian is continuing to do her part to help criminal justice reform in the United States.
According to E! News, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has decided to pay five years of rent for Matthew Charles, a former inmate who cannot afford housing.
In fact, he was denied housing after being granted clemency.
Charles took to Facebook on Sunday, March 10 to share the exciting news.
“I just received the most wonderful news tonight that I just had to share with everyone. Kim Kardashian-West, through Tracy, said they heard about my situation. Was moved and has decided to help me,” he wrote.
“And to me in an unbelievable way. Kim did not do this for attention or publicity, but I had to share it, because it’s to [sic] good not to, and my heart is about to burst with happiness, that I wish you to rejoice in this news with me. And many of your responses about the outcome of my dilemma prophesied it.”
He continued, “ GOD IS GOOD!!!. WHAT THE DEVIL MEANT FOR BAD, GOD REVERSED AGAIN, FOR MY GOOD. THANK YOU KIM KARDISHIAN-WEST and TRACY FOR THE LOVE SHOWN TO ME WHEN I WAS LOCKED UP. AND NOW THAT I’M FREE.. MY HEART IS ENLARGED.”
Charles was released from prison on January 3 after he was sentenced to 35 years in prison back in 1996 on drug trafficking charges.
This comes almost a year after Kardashian traveled to Washington D.C. to fight for clemency for Alice Johnson, a woman who was sentenced to life in prison for a drug offense.
Their story was even documented on a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
