Supermodel Petra Nemcova has been named ambassador at large for Haiti because of the charity work she's done through her nonprofit group the Happy Hearts Fund.
The Czech Republic citizen received the honor at a private ceremony at Haiti's National Palace on Friday with President Michel Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe. Her appointment was announced Monday by the Happy Hearts Fund.
Nemcova joins Hollywood actor Sean Penn and hip-hop musician Wyclef Jean, who carry the same title to promote Haiti to the outside world.
The Happy Hearts Fund was created several months after Nemcova barely survived the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The nonprofit focuses on helping children and building schools.
