SHAKIRA FOR DISPLACED CHILDREN
Shakira arrived to Colombia accompanied by one of the most recognized philanthropists worldwide, a man who works for children in the whole world. She spoke exclusively to Noticias RCN in Barranquilla, just moments before she left the country.
With a humble invitation that cannot be ignored by a man who is so interested in fighting against poverty, Shakira convinced the multimillionaire to visit Colombia.
"It really wasn't very hard to convince him, because he is a very compromised man, with a very big heart, who is willing to invest in Latin America. And I've talked so much about Colombia that he was curious to come and see what the situation was. And it was important for me to introduce him into country and let him see the difficulties in which these people live."
Between Chocó and Barranquilla, she showed him the reality of displaced children due to violence, hundreds of her Godchildren ran around behind the both of them. "I wanted him to understand the difficulty of the situation, but also the potential of our kids, the talent they possess, their intelligence, and if they receive an opportunity on time, they will become very productive members of our
society." She said.
The American Multimillionaire was interested in lending a helping hand. "I think he was impressed by the situation, but he also was impressed by the vivacity of the face of those, with which we had the opportunity to converse and I know he's willing to do something for Colombia, he wants to help." The artist assured.
Shakira talked about her new work, but it is still a mystery, "At this moment, I'm very concentrated on the production and I'm trying to push my new album so I can present my audience with something." She said.
The singer said she would go back to Colombia at any moment and without warning to finish the school she is building in her city which will be ready at any moment.Source: RCN
