Rihanna Donates $5 Million to Coronavirus Relief

Rihanna is doing her best to give back during the global coronavirus pandemic.

As it turns out, the $700k worth of ventilators she purchased for Barbados is just a fraction of the $5 million her Clara Lionel Foundation has donated around the world.

Her donation supports several organizations —  including food banks in at-risk communities throughout the US.

It will also go toward supporting medical staffers with protective equipment, critical respiratory supplies, maintenance of intensive care units and will aid in the development of vaccines and other methods to fight the virus globally.

“Never has it been more important or urgent to protect and prepare marginalized and underserved communities — those who will be hit hardest by this pandemic,” CLF Executive Director Justine Lucas told TMZ.

It warms our hearts to see celebrities using their voices, platforms, and wallets to help us fight.
