According to sources, hip hop star Rihanna recently donated $1.75 million dollars to help modernize a hospital in her home country. Apparently, the 24-year-old made the generous gift to Bridgetown’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital is in memory of her late grandmother, who passed away earlier this summer.
This was my way of giving back to Barbados, in a form of philanthropy, by assisting the QEH in its continued modernization program… 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.
After they received the donation, Bridgetown’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital quickly renamed their cancer treatment after Rihanna’s ‘Gran Gran Dolly’. The center will now be named: Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine.
During an interview with Oprah earlier this year, Rihanna emotionally opened up about her relationship with her late grandmother.
She was a well-rounded woman… She taught me a lot about forgiveness, loving my enemies, spirituality [and] strength as a woman.
What a lovely way to honor a lovely woman and a great way to say ‘Merry Christmas’ to the doctors, nurses and staff at the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine!
