RIHANNA GIVES BACK TO BARBADOS
Rihanna made a huge donation to Barbados’ Queen Elizabeth Hospital during the holidays in the name of her late grandmother Clara Brathwaite. The donation came in the form of three pieces of equipment worth more than $3.5 million in Barbados dollars (or around $1.75 million US ).
During the presentation, which she attended with her mom Monica Fenty and grandfather Lionel, the radiotherapy department at the hospital was renamed the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine. Rihanna told the crowd that the Clara Lionel Foundation was committed to improving medical treatment at the facility and she thanked Chief Executive Officer Dr Dexter James and his staff for facilitating the donation.
She added, “This was my way of giving back to Barbados, in a form of philanthropy, by assisting the QEH in its continued modernization program…I believe that this will have a huge impact on the people of Barbados. This was all done to save lives or at least extend them.”
