Kim Kardashian squeezes into thigh-high leather boots on Haiti charity trip

High kicks in Haiti: Kim Kardashian, clad in knee-high boots, seen here with fellow charity workers over the weekend after she jetted into the earthquake-stricken country with mother Kris Jenner

She has resumed her promotional commitments after taking time out in the wake of her messy split from husband Kris Humphries.

And now Kim Kardashian has found time in her busy schedule to pay a trip to Haiti and visited the earthquake-stricken country with her mother Kris Jenner over the weekend.

The 31-year-old reality star - who slipped into a pair of racy leather boots - teamed up with actress and singer Maria Bello, who has been working in Haiti for the past three years.

Pause for thought: The newly-single TV personality was helping out with the relief effort

The Coyote Ugly star co-founded We Advance, an organisation set up in 2010 in response to the devastating earthquake in the country.

Maria and Kim went to visit and celebrate women the charity works with and the reality star told fans the experience was ‘incredible’ and posted a picture to her blog showing herself and Maria, her mother Kris and Patricia Arquette, who was also in the party.

Kim and Maria also wrote a blog post for The Huffington post about their experience and explained what they were doing.

‘We were brought together through a bizarre turn of events, and we discovered our mutual goal of empowering women using our own unique voices.’

‘Our itinerary was to visit some of the small, grassroots NGOs that We Advance works with, including Artists for Peace and Justice, Femmes en Democratie, and Give Love, and to join women at the trade fair and fashion show in celebrating their achievements,’ the pair posted on the website.

The party were not the only familiar faces in Haiti and chat show legend Oprah Winfrey is also in the country.

The broadcaster’s trip included dinner with President Michel Martelly and his wife Sophia and she promised to return to the country.

Helping Haiti: Yesterday Oprah met with Sean Penn who has said helping the country has become his 'life work'

As Oprah flew into the country she was met by Sean Penn, who said helping to rebuild the country after last year’s natural disaster has become his ‘life’s work’.

A massive, 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti last January 12th, killing 230,000 and making 1.3 million more homeless.

'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.

Back to our reality: After her trip to Haiti with Kim, Kris Jenner was seen with her daughter Khloe in LA today

Oprah, who met up with US fashion designer Donna Karen today says she will be featuring the venture in a program about Haiti on her Oprah Winfrey Network.

Meanwhile back in L.A. today Kris Jenner was seen out and about with her other daughters Khloe and Kourtney.

Kim may well be licking her wounds after pictures surfaced which appear to show her estranged husband Kris Humphries entertaining girls in their marital apartment just weeks before they split.
