Rihanna donated $1.75 million in memory of her late grandmother. She donated to her native Barbados hospital.
E! News recently reported that Rihanna donated in memory of her late grandmother Clara “Dolly” Braithwaite, who passed away in June from cancer.
The donation will be given to the radiotherapy department at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown. The department will be renamed the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine.
“This was my way of giving back to Barbados, in a form of philanthropy, by assisting the QEH in its continued modernization program,” said Rihanna in a statement. “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.”Photo credit: allhiphop.com
