Rihanna recently teamed up with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to provide relief to domestic violence victims during the coronavirus pandemic.
“We’re joining forces with Twitter/Square CEO @Jack today by co-funding $4.2 million grant to the @MayorsFundLA to address the current crisis for domestic violence victims in Los Angeles as a result of the COVID-19 Safer at Home Order. #startsmall #CLF,” Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation announced on Twitter on Thursday.
Dorsey also noted on Twitter that the donation will cover “10 weeks of shelter, meals, and counseling for individuals and their children in LA suffering from domestic violence as a result of the COVID-19 Safer at Home Order.”
According to a press release, the grant will provide housing and food for nearly 100 victims every seven days, “with an additional 90 victims every week thereafter for 10 weeks.”
Per the announcement:
The Los Angeles Housing Authority has determined that approximately 90 people per week (in addition to their children, in many cases) have been turned away from domestic violence shelters in Los Angeles since the Safer at Home Order was issued …
It is estimated that more than 10 million people experience domestic violence in the U.S. each year, and the number of homicides related to domestic violence has been on the rise since 2010. In L.A. County, as overall homicides have declined, the number of women slain has steadily risen.
Applicants will also receive access to counseling.
Rihanna previously donated $5 million to various organizations to provide coronavirus relief efforts, in addition to pledging another $1 million alongside Jay-Z to help those most affected in Los Angeles and New York.
