After meeting with earthquake victims in a hospital in the Dominican Republic, Angelina Jolie is headed to Haiti on Monday.

The actress and UN goodwill ambassador visited with survivors at the Dario Contrera Hospital in Santo Domingo, says spokesman Dario Manon. Dozens of the victims of the Jan. 12 earthquake in Haiti are receiving medical help at the hospital.

"She spoke with several children and a Haitian woman who recognized her and requested help," Manon said, reports the Associated Press.

The actress was accompanied by Gonzalo Vargas Llosa, a representative of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and the son of Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa.

In the aftermath of the earthquake, Jolie and partner Brad Pitt donated $1 million to Doctors Without Borders to provide medical assistance to those in need of emergency care.
