Jay-Z and Rihanna give $2M to help most vulnerable populations during pandemic

Rihanna’s annual Diamond Ball — which raises money for her foundation — has been postponed this year and will not be taking place in September as usual.

It is unclear if and when another date will be set for the fundraiser.

Rihanna’s foundation outlined a range of purposes when their original donation was announced last week.

The money will be used for a multitude of causes, including to help provide supplies to food banks, which are feeding the vulnerable and elderly at this time, as well as to provide funds to help with more testing and care in countries such as Haiti and Malawi.

While the fun will is also being used to purchase protective equipment such as gloves and masks, it is hoped that it will also help with the cost of development of vaccines and to train health care workers.
