A charitable foundation set up by Colombian pop star Shakira has donated $40 million (£19.6 million) to help victims of natural disasters.
The singer has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide
The money will go towards repairing damage caused by an earthquake in Peru and a hurricane in Nicaragua.
A further $5 million (£2.46 million) will be spent on health and education in four Latin American countries.
The singer made the announcement at a New York summit on climate change organised by ex-President Bill Clinton.
Shakira, who has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, will also host a discussion on youth activism at the Clinton Global Initiative on Saturday.
Her foundation, Latin America in Solidarity Action, was set up with fellow Colombian and Nobel Prize laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez, in a bid to combat the deaths of children.
Shakira also fronts a charity to help children who are victims of violence.
