Rihanna Joins The Fight Against COVID-19, Donates 5 Million Dollars To Relief Efforts Through Foundation
Seeing as how the number of Covid-19 affected people is rising exponentially on a daily basis, the pandemic is spreading at a rapid rate and it’s getting difficult for governments all over the world to control it. In these times of need, every bit of help counts and this is where Rihanna has come out to help. After Justin Bieber, Ryan Reynolds, and Blake Lively, Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation is donating 5 million USD to the response efforts against coronavirus.

The foundation in a statement said that the money will support “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." Clara Lionel Foundation announced the same on their social media. The tweet read, “We’ve responded to COVID-19 by distributing $5 million to @PIH@DirectRelief @FeedingAmerica @rescueorg @WHO & #Barbados to prepare communities w/ critical protective gear, medical supplies, equipment and access to food across multiple regions. #CLF #HealthcareHeroes.”

Seeing as how Rihanna’s foundation has come up with this donation, let’s hope more celebrities come forward to help out in a situation that has put almost the whole world in a state of panic and requires all our efforts to get through.


Meanwhile, celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, are donating fund and have also been asking their fans to do the same. On March 16, Blake and Ryan announced that they are donating 1 million dollars to be split between  Feeding America and Food Banks Canada.
