Penelope Cruz - New Mum Penelope Cruz Feels More Compassion To Help Suffering Kids

Oscar winner Penelope Cruz is more dedicated than ever to helping children's charities across the world after becoming a first-time mother.
The Vicky Cristina Barcelona star has long been passionate about kids' causes and even worked as a volunteer at one of renowned humanitarian Mother Teresa's orphanages in Calcutta, India at the age of 22.
She tells Vogue magazine of the experience, "It changed the way I see the world."
Cruz has since engaged in similar campaigns, such as U2 rocker Bono's (Red) project to benefit Aids sufferers in Africa, and Sean Penn's unwavering efforts to rebuild Haiti following the devastating earthquake of January, 2010.
And, after welcoming son Leonardo with husband Javier Bardem in January (11), the Spanish beauty is determined to continue her mission to aid less fortunate youths in any way she can.
She says, "Even if you were aware of children and felt compassion, when you have your own, it multiplies. It breaks your heart to know that there are so many children in the world suffering so much."
