Rihanna's Foundation Donates $5 Million to Aid Global Coronavirus Response

   
 Rihanna‘s Clara Lionel Foundation has given $5 million to aid coronavirus prevention, preparation and response efforts in the United States and across the globe.
“CLF is supporting on-the-ground partners working on the frontlines of disaster response especially those focused on protecting and serving marginalized communities – helping the most vulnerable in the United States, the Caribbean and in Africa prepare for what is to come,” the foundation said in a statement.
“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,” said Justine Lucas, Executive Director of the Clara Lionel Foundation.
The contribution will benefit Direct Relief, Partners In Health, Feeding America, the International Rescue Committee and World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, among others.
In addition, Rihanna and the Clara Lionel Foundation hope to help local food banks serving at-risk communities and the elderly in the U.S, accelerate testing and care in countries like Haiti and Malawi, provide protective equipment for frontline health workers and diagnostic labs and bolster the development of vaccines and other therapies around the world.
