In­dia visit inspired Paris to help or­phans

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Amer­i­can so­cialite Paris Hil­ton (be­low) has made it her goal to help or­phans all over the world af­ter a trip to an or­phan­age in Mum­bai, In­dia.

“There’s this one or­phan­age in In­dia where all the chil­dren were left there be­cause their par­ents died of AIDS and the chil­dren had con­tracted the dis­ease as well. They were all in there, just so sick. It just broke my heart to see all these chil­dren left there with no fam­i­lies, with noth­ing. Even the peo­ple in town were treat­ing them in a bad way be­cause of the stigma of AIDS. It just broke my heart,” Hil­ton said. Since her visit to In­dia in 2012, the so­cialite made a vow to visit or­phan­ages in ev­ery coun­try she goes to and gives toys and gifts.

She also says that she wants to use her fame to help or­phans all over the globe. “I know that I have a voice to help those who don’t (have a voice), and I’m re­ally go­ing to ded­i­cate my life a lot to that in the up­com­ing years...I have worked very hard and I have a re­ally big heart,” she said.
