The Barbadian singer, actress, fashion designer, Rihanna is contributing through her Clara Lionel Foundation, which is named after her grandparents.

On January 25th, Rihanna announced the donation will go to eighteen climate justice organizations that are carrying out work in seven Caribbean nations and the United States including the Climate Justice Alliance, the Indigenous Environmental Network, and the Movement for Black Lives.

The singer said, “Climate disasters, which are growing in frequency and intensity, do not impact all communities equally, with communities of color and island nations facing the brunt of climate change.”

Clara Lionel Foundation’s executive director, Justin Lucas said, “Funders must build partnerships with grassroots organizations, acknowledging their deep understanding of what is necessary to achieve climate justice in their communities,”

In November, Rihanna was declared a national hero in her home country, Barbados by the country’s prime minister as the country celebrated becoming a Republic for the first time.
After the declaration, Rihanna became “Barbados’s 11th National hero”.

At the time, Prime Ministerio Mía Mottley said, “May you continue to shine like a diamond and bring honor to your nation by your works, by your actions.”

Rihanna had also been involved in multiple philanthropic ventures, including contributing to coronavirus relief efforts and showing support for anti-Asian hate protests in April 2021.
