From finding ways to help others cope to sheltering in place to canceling events, these are some of the ways the entertainment industry is reacting to the spread of the coronavirus, which most people recover from but can cause severe illness in the elderly and those with preexisting medical conditions.

Popstar Rihanna is the recent addition to the list of celebrities making their contribution towards making situations better amid the coronavirus outbreak.

 

Rihanna‘s Clara Lionel Foundation is giving $5 million to the response efforts against the coronavirus.

The money will support “on-the-ground partners working on the frontlines of disaster response especially those focused on protecting and serving marginalized communities helping the most vulnerable in the United States, the Caribbean and in Africa prepare for what is to come,” the foundation said in a statement.

The funding will be channeled through Direct Relief, Partners In Health, Feeding America, the International Rescue Committee, the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and others.

“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,” CLF’s executive director Justine Lucas said in the statement.

 

The money will go to food banks, testing, healthcare worker training, virus prevention and distribution of critical respiratory supplies.
