Since 1997 she’s helped bring opportunities to low-income children with her Pies Descalzos foundation and now she’s teamed up with another organization to help even more children. Shakira teamed up with the Juegaterapia Foundation to design a bald baby doll called “Baby Pelon,” which is used to raise funds and used as play therapy for cancer patients.

Juegoterapia is an organization that uses play therapy to help children cope with serious illnesses at hospitals. The organization was founded in 2010 when the founder, Monica Esteban gave a Playstation to a friend’s child that was receiving chemotherapy at a hospital. She immediately saw how playing video games changed the child’s mood.
