Dinesh D’Souza, co-director of the film “2016 — Obama’s America,” and author of the new book “Obama’s America,” sent money to cover the hospital bill of a sick child belonging to President Barack Obama’s brother after George Obama pleaded with him over the phone for help.

In a column published on FoxNews.com, D’Souza outlines how George Obama, the youngest of eight children sired by Barack Obama Sr., asked him to send $1,000 to cover medical bills for his young son who was sick with a chest condition.

D’Souza confirmed that the boy was ill and wired Obama the money. D’Souza met and interviewed George Obama in Kenya during research for his film.

D’Souza said in the column that President Obama wants nothing to do with his younger brother, which is surprising given that he lives in such poverty.

“Obama’s refusal to help George is especially surprising because George doesn’t just live in American-style poverty but rather in Third-World poverty,” D’Souza wrote. “He lives in a shanty in the Huruma slum in Nairobi. He gets by on a few dollars a month.”
