Black Enterprise Magazine July/August 2018 Issue

Rihanna has donated $1.75 million to a hospital in her native Barbados in memory of her late grandmother, according to the Associated Press.

The pop star made comments during a ceremony on Saturday with relatives at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The hospital’s radiotherapy unit has been renamed the Clara Braithwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine after Rihanna’s grandmother, who died in June.

Rihanna said the donation to buy three pieces of medical equipment was her way of “giving back to Barbados.”
