While for some people in quarantine, the main problem may be the organization of their hobbies, others, being locked up with attackers, literally try to survive. The number of victims of domestic violence during the coronavirus pandemic and the self-isolation regime has increased dramatically worldwide. 32-year-old singer Rihanna, who was facing the problem herself, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, donated $ 2.1 million each to the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles, which provides assistance to victims of domestic violence who have been quarantined.
A donation of $ 4.2 million will be made to victim assistance for 10 weeks, which includes housing, food and counseling for victims, including children victims of domestic violence. In a press release, Rihanna and Dorsey say that although they have started their charity work with Los Angeles, they understand that there are victims of domestic violence in the world. Their plans are therefore to expand their activities and continue to provide assistance to victims in other cities and countries.
In total, Rihanna has already donated approximately $ 5 million to various charities to fight the coronavirus.
By the way, the coronavirus also affected the singer’s family – her 66-year-old father Ronald Fenty found a positive test. Upon learning this, the star immediately bought him a fan and sent him to Barbados.

Honestly, I thought I was going to die,
