India visit inspired Paris Hilton to help orphans

Los Angeles, Aug 7 (IANS) Socialite Paris Hilton has made it her goal to help orphans all over the world after a trip to an orphanage in India changed her life.

“There’s this one orphanage in India where all the children there were left there because their parents all died of AIDS and the children had it 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 the town were treating them in a bad way because of it. It just broke my heart,” Hilton told New You magazine.

Since her visit to India in 2012, the socialite made a vow to visit orphanages in every country she goes to and always spoils the children with toys and gifts, reports

Recalling her time at a Mumbai orphanage, she added: “I brought them all (children in orphanage) toys and art projects and they were saying, ‘This is so sweet, no one ever visits them and people are scared to hang out with them.’

“That just made me so hurt inside that these poor children, who are literally dying, are being treated like outcasts. That is just something that really stuck with me and I always think about.”

She also says 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.
