The massive, 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti last January 12th, killing 230,000 and making 1.3 million more homeless. Sean Penn flew to the country to help one week later. Now, it’s his life’s work.
The actor gave a tour of his massive relief efforts in Haiti to The Hollywood Reporter, giving an unfiltered and sometimes shocking view of the devastation and poverty still racking the country. Devastation so bad, he says, that he’s dedicated his life to it. “There’s no end point,” he told the magazine. “This is where I’ll be when I’m not working, for the rest of my life.”
