The 2017 earthquake in Central Mexico destroyed an estimated 200,000 buildings and claimed the lives of over 100 people, with rebuilding efforts still ongoing over a year later.

Hilton also visited the city last year, donating money to the relief effort.

“I feel that this is my second home, I’ve been coming to Mexico all my life,” she said during her appearance. “I love the people, I think they are all beautiful, they have great hearts, they are beautiful inside and out, they are very genuine and incredible.”

One person who was on the visit with Hilton told Vanity Fair, “All the children were in awe of her, they were so thrilled and excited to meet her. Paris gave speeches that had all the people crying with her kind encouraging words of support.”
