"The @shawnfoundation & I have been working to find ways to best support COVID-19 relief efforts, and to direct our resources to where we can make a difference," Shawn Mendes said on Instagram.

"We've made a donation to @sickkidsvs hospital this week to help support the urgent screening and prevention of COVID-19 in my hometown of Toronto," the Canadian singer-songwriter added.

He said that all donations to The Shawn Mendes Foundation will go towards Sick Kids Hospital and relief efforts around the world by the World Health Organization for the next month.
