Beyoncé announced a coronavirus relief plan through her BeyGOOD Foundation on April 23. The global superstar’s efforts will focus on those most affected by the coronavirus.

Plans for relief are detailed on her website, “Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD recognizes the immense mental and personal health burdens being placed on essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. In our major cities, African-Americans comprise a disproportionate number of workers in these indispensable occupations, and they will need mental health support and personal wellness care, including testing and medical services, food supplies and food deliveries, both during and after the crisis.”

These organizations will help provide food, water, basic necessities, personal hygiene and face masks.
