Madonna donates $1m to Bill and Melinda Gates’ COVID-19 foundation

Madonna has announced she has donated $1million to the Gates Philanthropy Partners’ COVID-19 Therapeutics Accelerator in order to help find a cure for coronavirus.  

In a lengthy statement shared to her website Madona.com,  the pop star, 61, said she is ‘so impressed by the work of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’ that she wants to contribute to the cause.

The Microsoft billionaire announced his plans to fund seven different research labs in order to find a cure for the virus on Thursday.

Madonna shared a video to her Instagram page on Friday and announced the news of her hefty donation to fans.

She said: ‘Individually and globally we are obviously living in a state of emergency, I must admit it took me time to accept and process and modify my own lifestyle.’   

‘I’m joining the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation effort to find a drug that will prevent or treat COVID-19.

‘We need this to protect our health workers, the most vulnerable, and all of our friends and families.

‘I’m talking about this: I am so impressed by the work of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the COVID-19 Therapeutics Accelerator’s urgent efforts to find new or existing drugs that could effectively prevent or treat the disease.

‘Harnessing the strength and knowledge of the research community, the Accelerator’s critical scientific progress will inform how we end this pandemic and prevent future impact from the virus.

‘I send enormous gratitude and strength to the courageous first responders, medical professionals and scientists who are protecting our communities, those suffering and our most vulnerable.’
