Petra Nemcova, Czech Republic supermodel, has been named the envoy for Haiti. The reports suggest that Petra was named by ambassador at large for Haiti due to her charity works she has been doing through her nonprofit group named ‘The Happy Hearts Fund’.
The Czech supermodel was endowed with this honor at a private ceremony held at the Haiti’s National Palace on Friday where the President Michel Martelly and the country’s Prime Minister Lamothe were present. On Monday, Nemcova’s appointment as an ambassador was made by the Happy Hearts Fund.
It has been learnt that Petra Nemcova will join in Hollywood star Sean Penn and Wyclef Jean, the hip-hop musician, (both of them are also the appointed envoys to Haiti like Nemcova) and they all will be promoting Haiti to the outside world.
Post the survival of Nemcova from the 2004 severe Indian oceam tsunami, The Happy Hearts Fund was initiated several months after this incident. This nonprofit group makes its focus on helping the kids and building schools.
