This donation will go directly to the radiotherapy department at Queen Elizabeth Hospital , and the department will be renamed the “Ciara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine”.

Rihanna gave this statement:

This was my way of giving back to Barbados, in a form of philanthropy, by assisting the QEH in its continued modernization program. I believe that this will have a huge impact on the people of Barbados. This was all be done to save lives or at least extend them.
