BEYONCÉ VISITS CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL IN HAITI
Beyoncé is using her star power to bring awareness to a great cause. Last month, the global superstar visited Saint Damien Pediatric Hospital, the only children’s hospital in Haiti, as part of a United Nations humanitarian effort.
While there, she met with doctors, cancer patients, and newborns in a specialized intensive care unit. Sporting a “BeyGOOD” T-shirt, named after her charity, she held hands and laughed with the children.
The hospital provides medical treatment for disadvantaged and sick children in Haiti, but has recently lost funding resulting in cutbacks of staff and a decrease in the number of children that can be treated.
With the help of BeyGOOD, the hospital hopes to re-open an abandoned wing and continue to aid the people of Haiti. All proceeds from BeyGOOD T-shirt sales go directly to Saint Damien Pediatric Hospital.
