Earlier, Beyonce also announced the donation of USD 10,000 (Rs 7,32,462) to the black-owned small businesses amidst the anti-racism protests which began after the death of a Black-American citizen George Floyd.
 

The first round of donations helped businesses in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Houston and New York. According to the beyonce.com, it also benefitted bakery, barbershop and a martial arts school.
“Communities of colour are suffering by epic proportions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Many families live in underserved areas with homes that make it harder to practice social distancing,” the foundation was quoted as saying by Independent.
In April, Beyonce also donated USD six million (Rs 43,94,77,200) for the COVID-19 relief to the citizens.
Beyonce launched her organisation BeyGood in 2013. The organisation has helped various communities soon after its launch. It helped the victims of the Hurricane Harvey which is her hometown in Houston, Texas. It also brought safe water and sanitation for African country Burundi, along with the help of the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).
