Through Instagram, Madonna engaged fans in her experience in Haiti, posting photos of the country's inspiring children and various locales such as the beach of Ile-a-Vache, an island off the southwestern peninsula of Haiti. She encouraged fans to support J/P HRO programs which provide health care, education, construction and the safe return to permanent housing for displaced earthquake survivors residing in the Petionville Camp. This week, Penn launched his own Instagram to raise awareness of J/P's continuing efforts in Haiti: http://www.instagram.com/seanpenn
'The progress that has been made in Haiti is extraordinary, but it's clear there is so much more to be done,' said Madonna. 'I'm very inspired by J/P HRO's dedication and long-term commitment to the families and children of Haiti. What Sean and his organization have done is truly remarkable. They are paving the way to a brighter future for thousands of people. It's vital that the world stays on course with the reconstruction of Haiti.'
'I was very proud to introduce Madonna and her son to the work we are doing in Haiti,' said Sean Penn. 'It is my hope that more people will visit Haiti and see for themselves the beauty, spirit and potential of this great country.'
Madonna's Ray of Light Foundation is expected to join forces with J/P HRO on their continuing support for the citizens of Haiti. Details will be announced at a later date.
