Last week Rihanna’s Clara Lion Foundation distributed $5 million to numerous community health organizations that are aiding in combatting the spread of COVID-19. Those funds went to purchasing critical protective gear, medical supplies, equipment, and access to food across multiple regions.
Today, the Foundation returns with JAY-Z’s Shawn Carter Foundation in the combined amount of $2 million to support Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles, The Fund for Public Schools, The American Civil Liberties Union and New York Immigration Coalition. Those funds will support undocumented workers, children of frontline health workers & first responders, and incarcerated, elderly and homeless people.
Over the weekend New York Governor Andrew Cuomo thanked Rihanna for making a contribution to the efforts of containing the coronavirus in the state.
