Rihanna and Twitter boss, Jack Dorsey are joining forces to send millions to people in need of safety and protection they can't get at home during the coronavirus lockdown.


The singer's Clara Lionel Foundation and the Twitter CEO announced Thursday they are sending a $4.2 million grant to the Mayor's Fund for Los Angeles to help domestic abuse victims in the city.

The huge donation comes amid reports that at least 90 people are being turned away from full domestic violence shelters in L.A. per week, ever since California declared a safer-at-home order last month.

The money will be able to cover housing, meals and counseling for 90 victims per week for 10 weeks, and an additional 90 victims per week for 10 weeks after that.

The donation is just the latest contribution from Dorsey, who earlier this week unloadafterbillion dollars, 28 percent of his wealth to coronavirus relief efforts.
