Shakira to Build School for Needy Haiti Children

Posted on: April 12, 2010


Hip-shaking Colombian pop star Shakira is meeting with Haitian earthquake survivors living in makeshift camps and she says she is searching for suitable land to build a school for needy children.

Arriving Sunday, the singer with Lebanese roots waved to onlookers and greeted infants living on a Haitian golf course that has turned into a sprawling makeshift camp for 50,000 quake survivors.

Her Barefoot foundation provides nutrition to more than 6,000 children in Colombia, and she is member of the ALAS foundation that advocates for children across Latin America.

Shakira was greeted by actor Sean Penn, who is providing humanitarian aid at Haitian refugee camps. The two stars spoke about challenges confronting Haiti since the Jan. 12 disaster.

We’re thankful for such actions, but we know they have more money and they could do more than just build a school.

Ya a lot of money is being sent to Haiti, but Shakira is contibuting her own way and I like that

Thanks so much for the article post. Really Cool.
