With Christmas just two weeks away, Kim Kardashian is giving back -- in Haiti.

A source close to the reality star, 31, confirms that she's currently on the impoverished, earthquake-ravaged nation with mom Kris Jenner, designer Donna Karan and actresses Patricia Arquette and Maria Bello.

Prime Suspect star Bello, 44, is one of the co-founders of the organzation We Advance, which strives to "advance the health, safety and well being of women throughout Haiti," its website explains.

Working in "some of the poorest slums in all of the Western Hemisphere," We Advance reaches out to women in need, their family and community leaders.

It's a welcome respite from Kardashian's divorce battle with Kris Humphries, the source says. "She's been there for two days...She says it's amazing!"
