London, Feb 9 (ANI): Pop star Rihanna is helping a 5-year-old girl suffering from leukemia by finding a bone marrow donor for her.

Jasmina Amena has been struggling to find a donor, who can add relief to her life.

However, the 'Umbrella' hitmaker, who was deeply touched when she came to know about the New York girl's plight, has taken the initiative to help the girl.

"When I saw her video, it broke my heart," the Sun quoted Rihanna, as saying."It is so unfair that for a black patient it is so much harder to find a bone marrow match," Rihanna added.

Jasmian, who has been in hospital since January 20, is touched by Rihanna's gesture.

"Rihanna loves children. I'm so excited," Jasmina said. (ANI)
