Beyoncé donates  $6m to coronavirus relief

Beyoncé has announced a donation of $6 million for mental health and other initiatives during the coronavirus outbreak.

She teamed up with Twitter Founder Jack Dorsey’s COVID-19 relief fund #startsmall to make the donation to the National Alliance in Mental Health, University of California Los Angeles, and local community-based organisations working to improve mental health. In a statement on her website, Beyoncé said mental burdens were accelerating for people who can’t access basic necessities during the crisis.

She will also be supporting a range of charities providing those necessities, including food, water, cleaning supplies, medicines, face masks and personal hygiene items.
