Rihanna Steps In To Provide $5 Million To Boost Coronavirus Related Efforts
In the past few months, well-known celebrities have been contributing to relief funds associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Rihanna has also joined the initiative with her Clara Lionel Foundation, by which she promises $5 million to assist in different aspects of this ongoing health crisis.
For the sick and the hungry
Rihanna shared her views and said that her goal is to spend money equitably towards the research aimed at finding a vaccine for the virus. She wants to meet the demands of the food banks in the United States, as well.
Part of the $5 million will go to doctors and other paramedical staff that need to protect themselves from getting infected by the disease while fighting it.
What her charity is all about
Clara Lionel Foundation, which was founded by the singer/songwriter back in 2012, initially aimed to provide financial assistance to diverse organizations and movements that need help. Now, it is working for the wellbeing of people living in the United States, as well.
Executive Director Justin Lucas summed up the efforts of the organization by saying that it was never more relevant and compelling to assure and arrange for the underserved and marginalized communities because these will be the ones who will be hit hardest by this outbreak.
A boost in fundraising efforts
To meet its goals in providing relief to the people, the Clara Lionel Foundation has ramped up its fundraising efforts. If you look into the institution’s official website, you will see that the foundation funds and supports educational endeavors and also provides assistance to emergency relief programs all across the globe.
CLF and Twitter join hands
On April 9, CLF, along with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, joined hands to provide funding against the recent surge in domestic violence in Los Angeles. The duo has reportedly combined $4.2 million, which is good enough to provide the victims of domestic violence with food and shelter for up to ten weeks. The package will consist of accommodation, meals, and counseling services for the victims and their children.
According to reports, around 10 million people residing in the United States experience domestic violence at the hands of their partner. The L.A. housing authority gathered the data and concluded that every week many individuals, along with their children, are entering at-capacity domestic violence shelters as the incidents of domestic violence are on the rise because of the stay-at-home orders issued by the government.
