“Rihanna has charitably built a state-of-the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados,” said Harvard Foundation director S. Allen Counter.

Rihanna created the Clara Lionel Foundation in honor of her grandparents in order to improve health, education, arts, and culture around the world along with offering scholarships for students from Caribbean countries. She also serves as an ambassador for Global Citizen, which provides children access to education in developing countries.

Back in December, Rihanna joined Prince Harry in Barbados were they were both tested for HIV on World AIDS Day to raise awareness for the disease.

Congrats Rihanna!
