Kylie Jenner Sweetly Cradles Baby While Visiting Children With Cleft Palates at Hospital in Peru

Kylie Jenner is giving back in a big way.
The 19-year-old reality star visited the Delgado Clinic in Lima, Peru, with her mother, Kris Jenner, on Tuesday, and got emotional while holding baby Mia, who had recently undergone surgery to fix her cleft palate, People reports. The procedure was funded by Smile Train, an organization that Kylie reportedly donated nearly $1 million to in support of the non-profit organization's mission to provide support and corrective surgery for children in developing countries with the birth condition.
This isn't the first time Kylie has worked with Smile Train. Last year, she raised nearly $500,000 for the charity by selling $29 special-edition lip kits, and giving 100 percent of the proceeds to Smile Train. That kind of money can fund 1,800 surgeries for children born with lip and/or cleft palates.
Kylie has proved to be quite generous, especially with her friends. In January, the youngest Jenner sister donated $10,000 to a GoFundMe campaign for John Woods, the late father of her best friend, Jordyn. John died from cancer on Jan. 18, and the family was raising funds to help cover medical costs incurred during his final weeks.
