Rihanna and Jack Dorsey are putting their wealth together to give millions to people in need of protection they can’t get at home during the coronavirus lockdown.
The singer’s Clara Lionel Foundation and the Twitter CEO announced Thursday they’re sending a $4.2 million grant to the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles to help domestic abuse victims in the city.
The huge donation comes amid reports that at least 90 people are being turned away from full domestic violence shelters in L.A. per week, ever since California declared a safer-at-home order last month.
The money will be able to cover housing, meals and counseling for 90 victims per week for 10 weeks, and an additional 90 victims per week for 10 weeks after that.
As previously reported, domestic abuse numbers have spiked since the mostly nationwide lockdown.
