Miley Cyrus put her partying in the U.S.A. on hold for a second trip to Haiti. Joining up with the Starkey Hearing Foundation for the second time this year, the 18-year-old singer showed her empathetic, charitable side by helping to distribute more than 400 hearing aids to needy Haitians.
Living in a country that's still reeling from last year's
catastrophic earthquake, the Haitian children looked overjoyed to meet
the former Ms. Montana. Miley even hung out with the kids, helping to
fit hearing aids, chatting it up and sharing tender moments.
for the little boy she shared a heartwarming hug with, Miley shared the
details on Twitter. "That's a little boy named Emanuel :) we
fit him w hearing aids... I've never seen a smile like his! I can't wait
to go back."
"I felt so drawn to helping others hear for the first time and immediately wanted to look for another chance to go back and help again," Cyrus said in a statement regarding her followup Haiti trip so soon after her philanthropic February visit. "This second mission to Haiti was just as impactful to me as the first one. I grew up around music and couldn't imagine what it would be like for my siblings and me, if we couldn't hear the magic of music. It's had such an influence on my life, and I just want everyone to enjoy sound as it was intended."
