Rihana donates $1.75m to Barbados cancer hospital

She’s one of the world’s biggest pop stars. But Rihanna is still a small town girl. And as she heads home to Barbados for Christmas it has been revealed that she has donated $1.75million to a local hospital.

Rihanna poses with her mother Monica Fenty and grandfather Lionel Braithwaite on a visit to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados, to which she has donated $1.75m

The donation was made in memory of her late grandmother, who died of cancer in June.

The 24-year-old pop star’s generous donation led to the radiotherapy department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Bridgetown, being renamed the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine, in memory of her ‘Gran Gran Dolly.’

The money paid for three vital pieces of equipment worth more than $3.5 million Barbados dollars.

Rihanna said: ‘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 them.’

Rihanna was accompanied by Dolly’s husband, Lionel, and her mother, Monica Fenty as she visited the department this weekend.

The singer’s love of her grandmother was well known to fans, with the star often speaking of her on Twitter.

When she took a turn for the worse earlier this year Rihanna jetted to New York to be at her bedside.

And following her death Rihanna posted a series of family photos in a tribute to Mrs Braithwaite.
