Kylie Jenner donated nearly $1million to fund surgery for babies to undergo cleft palate surgery, having met suffering children during her trip to Peru.
The 19-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star visited the South American country with her mother, 61, where on Tuesday she met children affected by the facial birth defect in association with the Smile Train organisation.
Dressed in a sporty ensemble, complete with a PE Nation crop top and leggings, the reality favourite appeared to grow emotional as she cuddled baby Mia, the child whose face was saved by the surgery.
Make-up mogul Kylie is working alongside non-profit charity Smile Train in conjunction with her wildly popular lip kit brand, with which she has created a special colour with proceeds going to the charity.
The organisation provides free surgeries for those in developing nations born with the birth defect and the reality star is a staunch supporter of the cause.
Arriving at the hospital in Lima, Kris and Kylie looked beyond touched as they met the staff and cuddled children suffering from the defect and awaiting surgery.
Kylie was clad in a black crop top which acted to boost her cleavage while she also flashed her abs while sporting skin-tight high-waisted leggings and a hoodie.
Scraping her hair back into a slick bun, Kylie had her make-up uncharacteristically minimal, although her lips were undoubtedly clad in the charity’s special colour.
Kris meanwhile looked chic in a gingham coat with a plain black ensemble underneath as she threw her support behind her daughter.
In October Kylie unveiled the charity gloss, which is a lighter pink color than her other glosses, Smile – as Kylie titled it – is unique because of its partnership with Smile Train.
The sister of Kendall Jenner announced that 100 percent of the net proceeds from the sales of the limited edition color will be given to the nonprofit organisation.
The E! star then continued to showcase the exact shade on her arm, comparing it to a similar lip color that is already out called Koko.
She said on her Snapchat video that she wanted pink ‘because it is fun and young and for all ages.’ Kylie then urged for her fans to ‘all come together and help children smile all over the world.’
Smile Train provides free surgeries for those in developing nations born with the birth defect and the reality star is a staunch supporter of the cause.
To help fund the charity, Kylie has created a special lip kit color dedicated to cleft sufferers, with proceeds from the sale going to Smile Train and she was able to give more than 600 children new smiles.
