Rihanna's foundation pledges 5 Million to fight Coronavirus epidemic.

Rihanna has pledged to donate $5 million dollars to a number of global organizations to provide coronavirus relief.   The donations are going through her Clara Lionel Foundation known as CLF. 

CLF supports and funds groundbreaking education and emergency response programs around the world.  In a recent statement they said  "the cash will be used to support a myriad of efforts including local food banks serving at-risk communities in the U.S., speed up testing and medical care in countries like Haiti and Malawi." Additionally, money will be given to the healthcare industry to help "with protective equipment, maintenance of intensive care units and the acceleration of the development of vaccines and other methods to fight the disease" and distribute critical respiratory supplies.

$700,000 of that donation is slated to go to the singer's home country of Barbados, where it will be used to purchase ventilators.
