Rihanna is a superhero without a cape!

The Fenty Beauty make up mogul and her foundation, Clara Lionel Foundation, has donated $5 million to charities in an effort to curb the Coronavirus pandemic.

The foundation shared the announcement in a press release on Saturday (21 March).

“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,” The foundation Executive Director, Justine Lucas, said in a statement.

Following the announcement, The Clara Lionel Foundation Instagram account posted an image of the team and shared that the funds will  help “prepare communities [with] critical protective gear, medical supplies, equipment and access to food across multiple countries and regions.”

But that’s not all, the 32-year -old was kind enough to purchase a $700,000 US worth of ventilators for her home country of Barbados.
