Pop star Rihanna gave $1.75 million to a Barbados hospital in honor of her late grandmother.

Rihanna gave the generous gift to Bridgetown’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital in memory of her granmother, who she called Gran Dolly on Saturday. Her grandmother passed away from cancer during the summer.

“This was my way of giving back to Barbados, in a form of philanthropy, by assisting the QEH in its continued modernization program,” Rihanna told E! News in a statement. “I believe that this will have a huge impact on the people of Barbados. This was all done to save lives, or at least extend them.”

RiRi’s donation will be used to buy three pieces of medical equipment for the cancer treatment center. The department will also be renamed after Rihanna’s grandmother–the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine.

Rihanna looked stunning at the event in a $1,190 shirtdress by Givenchy.
