Rihanna’s foundation, the Clara Lionel foundation, gives more than R88 million to various health-care organisations to help fight Covid-19

 

The singer and businesswoman’s foundation, the Clara Lionel Foundation, which she founded in 2012 has pledged $5 million (R88 million) to help fight the coronavirus. According to the foundation’s website, the money will support:

  • Local food banks serving at-risk communities and the elderly in the United States.

    • Acceleration of testing and care in countries like Haiti and Malawi, as well as the mobilisation of resources and additional capacity and support for native communities.

    • Protective equipment for frontline health workers and diagnostic labs, the establishment and maintenance of intensive care units, and acceleration of the development of vaccines and other therapies across the globe.

    • Health-care worker training, virus prevention and containment in countries that will be on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response and

    • Distribution of critical respiratory supplies.

The singer’s philanthropic efforts have been recognised earlier this year at the NAACP Image Awards, where she received a President’s Award for her public service.
