Paris Hilton and sister Nicky Hilton-Rothschild‘s family is helping out during this difficult time.
The Hilton Foundation – a non-profit established by hotel entrepreneur Conrad N. Hilton in 1944 – announced a $10 million donation towards coronavirus relief efforts.
According to a press release from the foundation, “about half will go toward protecting the homeless population in Los Angeles, with the other half focused on helping African countries prepare for a pending outbreak.”
The money will be used to help health care clinics in LA purchase essential supplies and personal protective equipment (such as hand sanitizer and testing kits) and “cover expenses related to developing and implementing a COVID-19 response plan to care for individuals experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County,” the press release states.
The other half will be donated to countries in Africa that are underfunded and have poorly equipped health care system.
