Rihanna and Ludacris are among the celebrities to rally funds and aid for the hurricane stricken Bahamas.

Disney has also pledged assistance.

Several islands that make up the Caribbean nation have been devastated by Hurricane Dorian over the past few days.

Relief efforts only recently got underway, but are still being hampered by power outages and continuing flooding.

Ri Ri and Luda have both taken to social media to raise awareness and funds.

The Clara Lionel Foundation was founded by Rihanna in 2012, to support and fund groundbreaking and effective education, health and emergency response programs around the world.

Rapper and “Fast and Furious” star Ludacris also raised money over the weekend.

And according to Fox News, Walt Disney Company andย Disney Cruise Line will donate $1 million to recovery and relief efforts in the Bahamas.

Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger is quoted as saying:

“The Walt Disney Company stands with the people of The Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian. We hope our $1 million donation will provide much-needed relief and help our neighbors, colleagues, and all those impacted by this devastating storm begin the long process of recovery as they work to put their lives and communities back together.”
