Oprah Winfrey has been in Haiti this week to visit some of the efforts being made to help the earthquake-ravaged country as the second anniversary of the disaster approaches.

The Talk Show Queen visited refugees with Sean Penn on Monday, saying “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.”

Oprah also dined with Haiti President Michel Martelly during her trip, and visited several charity ventures, including Caribbean Craft, a business that was established through a loan scheme launched by Bill Clinton earlier this year.

“Everybody who has spent time in Haiti knows how important it is for the world to see what is going on here,” said Sean Penn. “We really appreciate that she’s here with us.”

Oprah will feature her visit on a special program on her Oprah Winfrey Network.
