Rihanna recently donated a whopping $1.75 million to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital located in her native Barbados, StarzUncut.com reports.
The superstar donated the money in memory of her late grandmother Clara “Dolly” Braithwaite. Rihanna’s grandmother died last June of cancer, so as a tribute, Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation supplied the funds to the hospital, which were subsequently used to purchase new equipment for the hospital’s radiotherapy department.
Rihanna was seen later visting the hospital accompanied by her mother, Monica Fenty, and grandfather, Lionel Brathwaite, on Saturday during the unveiling of the new department. The new department’s name will be the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine.
