MODEL KARRUECHE Tran has just returned from Haiti were she travelled to raise awareness about people living with a cleft lip or palate.
The 27-year-old travelled abroad with Smile Train, a leading cleft charity with programs in over 85 of the poorest countries around the world.
Karrueche, who has over four million followers on Instagram, shared her daily experiences on the platform and said she was “so happy to bring awareness to a problem so many people aren’t aware of”.
“There was such a great energy out there amongst us,” she wrote upon her return. “It was kind of unreal.. It’s crazy because the least fortunate places have the best energy.
“Leaving Haiti, I left with such positivity and strength knowing there are people like @smiletrain helping to make a difference for people who need it the most. Giving these kids their confidence back.. Being able to eat and speak properly through cleft lip and palette surgeries.”
The charity, who operate under the slogan, “changing the world one smile at a time”, said they were glad the group, which also included US singer and actor Quincy, were able to witness life-changing surgeries during their stay.
