Pop Star Visits 'Quake Victims in Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - 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 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.
