Miss World CEO Julia Morley, the reigning Miss World, Wenxia Yu from China, and the reigning Mr World, Colombia’s Francisco Escobar, lead a special team to Haiti to see firsthand the relief efforts that are supported from $500,000 USD raised by the Miss World contestants as part of Beauty With A Purpose.
The poverty and suffering in Haiti are greater than at any time. It is hoped that the extensive visit will be bring additional world focus on the desperate health and nutrition problems faced by the people as well as additional funding through Beauty With A Purpose and Variety International Childrens Fund.
The funds are being donated by Miss World through Variety International Children’s Charity under the guidance of Dr Ben Fredrick.
