Rihanna the philanthropist: In Africa In a James 1:27 Fashion Taking Care of the Orphan and the Widow


When some hear about Robyn Rihanna Fenty, the first thing that comes to their mind is either the super talented or naughty singer. Rih-Rih, as her many fans call her however is rarely recognized for her amazing and kind heart. What many fail to recognize is the fact that other than gracing our screens with her music and acting, Rihanna is also a philanthropist whose heart is deep in helping out people in need by running non-profitable charities.

Most recently, one of her acts that has caught the eyes of many around the world was her un-publicized tour to Malawi as a Global ambassador for Global Partnership for Education. On this trip, the singer explained that she wanted a firsthand experience of the Malawian children where half of the population lives below the poverty line.

During this trip, a make-up free Rihanna mingled with children where she also set aside time to teach them mathematics. Pictures posted on her social media showed the celebrated cheerful hit maker even balancing a bucket of water on her head and shoveling soil as she worked with the benefactors.

Some have asked why some Christian Artist’s are rarely seen doing such works of  taking care of orphans and widows in their affliction… as one commented on social media “It is sometimes so easy to judge people and only think the worst of them but their hearts can be in the right place compared to some who LOUDLY profess to love God and yet hate their neighbors.”

Well to whom much is given, much is required, let us all continue to do good works.
