Rihanna’s foundation has just donated $5 Million to Coronavirus relief efforts.
Her Clara Lionel Foundation has been committed to helping out communities since 2012 and they’re continuing that goal with this donation.
The money will go to help organizations in the U.S. and abroad to help those affected by the coronavirus.
Some of the money will also go towards making sure health care workers are taken care of as they help those that are ill.
Also, on the heels of her $5 million donation to the United States, Africa and the Caribbean, Rihanna has now donated over $700,000 worth of ventilators to her home country of Barbados.
Rihanna, who is the ambassador for Barbados, has been putting money into those areas affected by COVID-19.

The singer, who is the richest female in the world and is worth $600 million, was recognized by Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley, who said Rihanna’s donation amounts to $1.4 million in the country’s currency.
Barbados doesn’t have a high number of COVID-19 cases but the potential for that to change is possible.
