Nicole Kidman Visits, Spotlights Post-Quake Haiti

Nicole Kidman visits Haiti on Friday (July 30) and calls for the urgent need to address gender-based violence among affected populations.

The 43-year-old Goodwill Ambassador for UNIFEM (United Nations Development Fund for Women) also stressed the critical need to support long-term initiatives that advance women’s livelihoods as part of the rebuilding efforts.

In Haiti, Nicole and UNIFEM exec director Inés Alberdi (pictured here) met with survivors of violence living in a temporary camp, with Haitian and UN officials, and with national non-governmental organizations working to support women’s needs in recovery efforts after the devastating earthquake.

“During this trip I saw first-hand how this humanitarian disaster is impacting women and girls. The lack of shelter and security makes them more vulnerable to violence, in particular sexual violence,” Nicole said. “Yet, I have also seen the determination and resilience of women and men in Haiti to rebuild their country. Today I visited a temporary shelter for women and girls who experienced sexual violence or are at risk, where women leaders work to make sure there are medical and legal services as well as counseling and livelihood training. This needs to be done on a large scale and they need our support.”

FYI: Nicole and husband Keith Urban recently manned the phones during a Haiti telethon and are donating money to build schools there.

Kudos to Nicole! She’s a real lady and a wonderful role model. She’s the definition of class.

@Joss Stone:

In your dreams.

I don’t see how anyone can badmouth someone that is trying to help other humans.

Nicole is fantastic. A real woman of Nashville. We’re proud to have her.

Glad to see that UNIFEM, those not so famous volunteers and a very famous actor are all helping out those women and children of Haiti who are all victims of senseless violence. Hats off, guys and it reminded me to donate to our local women shelter.

Good on you Nicole!

Kudos to the team assisting the Haitians!

(“NOTE” to Tim Gunn: you said “lips thinner, no more injections at the luncheon” … well, it seems since then she has managed to squeeze in a visit to the parlour as not only are her lips thicker again, but in the picture with her seated with the activists, she is trying to frown, but the only thing moving slightly is her right eyebrow. Undeniable.)

look and picture #2 and tell if those eyes aren’t the most beautiful in the world.

Kudos to Nicole! You’re very special!

Thank you Nicole for spotlighting the situation in Haiti. Great cause.

@nyob – I totally agree!! That was my first reaction. Black absorbs the heat – she must be sweating buckets. Hope she wore her extra strength deodorant. I know she doesn’t like the sun but come on – wear light colours.

sell your unoccupied Sutton House mansion and build a refuge for the women!!! something real! signatures don’t help the women … petitions are ignored by the powers that be. people don’t donate cash. talk is free.

@che:
everybody with a brain would see that this shirt is linen made and this is freshere than the cotton.
and everybody with a brain would know nicole can’t expose a single inch of her skin under the sun for long time because she had a lot of skin cancers since the age of 12. she has the last one two years a go. she doesn’t need a deodorant, you need a doctor.
how superficial are you? she was there to help women and children and is this the only thing you can notice? how’s she dressed? you’re a stupid emotionless moron.
