Shakira Visits Haitian Earthquake Survivors!

| Filed under: InspirationShakiraSean Penn

Shakira saw the devastation of the Haitian earthquake firsthand as she arrived in Port-au-Prince on Sunday. She visited a golf course that has been turned into a makeshift camp for over 50,000 survivors.

The Columbian singer was there to search for land to build a school for needs children. And it's nothing the humanitarian hasn't done before!

She runs that Barefoot foundation, which provides nutrition to more than 6,000 Columbian children in Colombia and Shakira is also is member of the ALAS foundation that advocates for children across Latin America.

It's just too bad the first person she saw in Haiti was Sean Penn! Guess you can't win 'em all!

    As a COLOMBIAN woman, I get so freakin' irritated when people misspell the country! I know Perez would be equally as annoyed if people always commented on his Cuben pride.

    I'll stand up for Sean - sure he can be a jerk sometimes - but at least he's THERE doing something to help! your monetary donations don't mean a thing unless someone actually organizes the spending - and puts it to good use!

    Hey Perez!

    Well, everyone makes mistakes, and they learn from them. But you should learn from them after the first time. Now, here you are repeating the same mistake by misspelling a country's name. You are supposed to be a professional, now write like it. Your updates are very entertaining, but use spellcheck. After the "160 Arrested at Metallica Concert" update, I think you must have learned that you were wrong. Just make sure you are informing your public correctly, especially when it's as important as a name of a country or even a capital. I don't think you would appreciate someone spelling your country's name incorrectly, especially when you have a world-wide fanbase!
    Still love you, just be careful!

    todos comentan sobre los otros terremotos, pero nadie se enteró del terremoto que hubo el domingo 04 de abril en Mexicali, BC, Mexico, cerca de la frontera de California, fue mas fuerte y duró mucho más que el de Haití… fue de 7.2grados richter, no digo que seamos más importantes, pero si hubo daños y en el Valle de Mexicali, la mayor parte de las personas perdieron sus casas, y no tienen donde dormir, no cuentan con agua potable o electricidad desde aquel lamentable día.

    desde aquel día han habido mas de 2980 réplicas.
