Socialite Paris Hilton showed off her charitable side on Thursday (25Apr13) by visiting a children's hospital in Colombia and showering patients with presents.

The star has jetted to the South American country to open one of her fashion stores in the capital city of Bogota, and she took time out from her busy schedule to take gifts to sick youngsters in a medical facility.

Hilton uploaded photos from the hospital visit to her page on image sharing website Instagram, and wrote on her page, "At the Children's Hospital in Colombia today visiting the kids. Loved spending time with them. Such precious angels."

Hilton's boyfriend River Viiperi, who accompanied the socialite on the visit, adds, "Just went with my gorgeous blondie Paris Hilton to give some presents to the kids from the children's hospital."
