Escorted by security guards, Lady O toured an encampment for Haitians displaced by a massive 2010 earthquake on Monday with actor Sean Penn, who helped create an aid group that provides support to people who live in the encampment for an upcoming program on her Oprah Winfrey Network.The camp where his group works was built on a former country club golf course and has been home to thousands of people since the earthquake left much of the Haitian capital in ruins.

“This is part of the next chapter, going around the world to see interesting and fascinating cases of profound examples of what can be done to make a difference in the world,” Winfrey told reporters at the encampment.

Penn said he welcomed the interest of “the world’s most elegant woman” and expected it would help Haiti. “Everybody who has spent time in Haiti knows how important it is for the world to see what is going on here . . . We really appreciate that she’s here with us,” Penn said.

#Team Sean Penn, I just love him!
