Rihanna through her foundation has donated tons of safety gear to New York area hospitals to help fight the COVID19 pandemic.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Tweeted his appreciation to RiRi and her foundation for helping out. New York has become the epic center of the virus, with news stations showing huge lines forming outside by citizens trying to get tested for the coronavirus.
“I want to thank @rihanna and the Rihanna Foundation for donating Personal Protective Equipment to New York State. We’re so appreciative of your help and that of so many others who have stepped up.
And this isn’t RiRi’s only major coronavirus-related donation: She already donated $5 million through her Clara Lionel Foundation on Monday to various organizations on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S., the Caribbean and Africa.
