RiRi donates USD 1.74m to Barbados hospital
Rihanna donated three pieces of medical equipment - worth more than 1.74 million dollars - to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados.
The donation was made from the Clara Lionel Foundation, in memory of her late grandmother Dolly, who died of cancer in June.
"This was my way of giving back to Barbados in a form of philanthropy, by assisting the QEH in its continued modernization programme. . . .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 it," the 24-yea-old said.
Rihanna's gran Dolly died earlier this year and the star posted many pictures of herself in the hospital with her before her death.
