Miley Cyrus Goes Back To Haiti To Open School And Donate Kids’ Hearing Aids [ Photos]

Miley Cyrus is really putting effort into proving there’s more to her than we think.
Miley travelled to Haiti last week to assist in the opening of a community school in the town of Luly funded by the Starkey Hearing Foundation and the Digicel Foundation in Haiti. This was Miley’s second trip, having traveled with the organization before to fit needy school children with hearing aids.

Miley Cyrus has been working closely with the Starkey Hearing Foundation for quite some time now, and the singer/actress recently returned to Haiti for the second time in order to lend assistance in Starkey’s ‘So the World May Hear’ campaign. While there, Cyrus helped with the distribution of state-of-the-art hearing aids to hundreds of Haitian children and adults.
Cyrus and Haitian President Michel Martelly worked with Starkey representatives to give the giftof hearing to more than 400 Haitian citizens, many whom lost their hearing due to the injuries sustained during the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010.
Starkey’s visit to the country was made possible due to a generous donation from the former ‘Hannah Montana’ star. Cyrus, who also visited the President’s palace on her trip to Haiti, bid on the trip during a silent auction back in July, and the funds from the silent auction allowed the Starkey team and Cyrus to give hundreds of Haitians the ability to hear once again. There are few gifts that are stronger and more powerful than the gift of sound, and it is obvious that Cyrus was incredibly moved by the people around her, as you can see in these pictures.
“After I went on my first mission to Haiti with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, 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 press release. “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, that I just want everyone to enjoy sound as it was intended.”

Meanwhile, her fellow Disney kid Kyle Massey is making reality TV history with Bristol Palin. SMH at Young Black Hollywood right now.
