Rihanna is the latest celebrity doing their part to help combat coronavirus. The singer's charity organization, the Clara Lionel Foundation, has donated $5 million to support the global fight against the pandemic.

"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," read a statement from the foundation, according to People magazine.

Rihanna and her foundation will also aim to help local food banks serve at-risk communities and the elderly in the United States, accelerate testing efforts in countries such as Haiti and Malawi, and aim to provide protective equipment for medical professional and diagnostic lab workers who are working to develop vaccines to combat the virus.

"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," commented Justine Lucas, executive director of CLF.
克拉拉莱昂纳尔慈善基金会的执行董事Justine Lucas评论说:“边缘化和服务不足的社区将成为此次疫情最大的受害者,现在保护他们、帮他们做好准备是最重要、最紧急的。”

Just last month, Rihanna was honored for her philanthropic efforts with CLF—alongside her countless cultural contributions—at the 2020 NAACP Image Awards, where she received the President's Award.
