Teen star Miley Cyrus was humbled during a charity trip to Haiti after visiting children suffering from hearing disabilities.

The singer/actress travelled to the city of Port-Au-Prince earlier this year, with her mother, Tish, to see the relief efforts made by workers at her Get UR Good On organisation, which she set up to encourage young people to get involved in philanthropy.

Volunteers have teamed up with aid workers at the Starkey Hearing Foundation to deliver hearing aids to survivors of the devastating earthquake which hit the region in January 2010, and Cyrus admits it was a real eye-opening experience to witness the progress first hand.

She tells People magazine, "It was an amazing experience to watch kids hear for the first time in their lives."
