PIC: How Kim Kardashian Gave Back in Haiti
Forget about her messy love life. Kim Kardashian put the drama behind her for several days last week and over the weekend -- when she and her mom, Kris Jenner, visited Haiti for a pre-holiday humanitarian mission.
In a new photo from Saturday, Kardashian, 31, and Jenner, 56, look on serenely with a local Haitian child (wearing colorful beaded jewelry and a "Spread the Joy" t-shirt) at an event.
The mother and daughter were visiting the impoverished nation -- still rebuilding from the devastating January 2010 earthquake -- as part of We Advance, the organization cofounded by actress Maria Bello.
Along with Bello, fellow actress Patricia Arquette and designer Donna Karan, the reality stars visited the Artists for Peace and Justice School, helped replenish supplies at We Advance clinics, checked out a fashion show launched by local women and designers and celebrated at the Sow a Seed Christmas bash, where 500 local orphans were treated with gifts. The final stop on the agenda: An intimate meeting with the President of Haiti, Michel Martelly.
According to its website, We Advance strives to "advance the health, safety and well being of women throughout Haiti," working in "some of the poorest slums in all of the Western Hemisphere."
Kardashian -- in the midst of an ugly divorce from Kris Humphries -- had an "amazing" experience on the mission, a pal told Us.
