Rihanna was recently honored with the prestigious President’s Award during the 51st NAACP Image Awards in “recognition of a special achievement and distinguished public service”.

Rihanna established the Clara Lionel Foundation in 2012 in honor of her grandparents. The nonprofit champions and sponsors education and emergency response programs worldwide, according to its website.




Again, Rihanna proves her devotion to humanitarian service as her Clara Lionel Foundation has donated a total of $5 million to various organizations, particularly in marginalized communities in the United States, the Caribbean and in Africa.

The donation is for those that are working toward preventing the further spread of Coronavirus as well as helping those most deeply affected by the pandemic.




Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) has distributed the funds to at least five different non-profits, including Direct Relief, Partners In Health, Feeding America, the International Rescue Committee, the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

The executive director at Clara Lionel Foundation said : “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.”




Variety reported that the donations will “support local food banks serving at-risk communities and the elderly in the U.S., testing and care in Haiti and Malawi, the distribution of medical equipment, vaccine and therapy research and development, and healthcare training.”
