Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation Donates $5M Towards Coronavirus Relief

Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation (the same organization that hosts the elegant annual Diamond Ball) set to donate $5m to support families impacted by the coronavirus.

The nonprofit’s official Twitter account announced on Saturday (March 21) that it would be dividing $5 million between Partners In Health, Direct Relief, Feeding America, International Rescue Committee, World Health Organization (WHO) and the megastar’s home country of Barbados in efforts for them to obtain scarce medical supplies, food banks and more in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

“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,” the tweet read.

Founded in 2012 and named after Rihanna’s grandparents, the Clara Lionel Foundation has had its hands in emergency responses during hurricanes, famines, and other natural disasters.

According to data compiled by WorldOMeter, more than 300,000 people have been infected by COVID-19, resulting in over 13,000 deaths and 80,000 recoveries.
