Supermodel Naomi Campbell is said to be planning a humanitarian mission to Haiti in an effort to see where the money from her Fashion for Relief charity is being invested.

Campbell, 39, revealed she would be travelling to earthquake hit Haiti next month with White Ribbon, a philanthropic group founded by Sarah Brown, wife of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

"I will be there after Easter to confirm first-hand the work of White Ribbon with women and children, and especially with 37,000 pregnant women who are facing extreme risk situations," the New York Daily News quoted her as telling Brazilian newspaper O Dia.

Her own humanitarian group, Fashion for Relief, has raised more than 1.5 million dollars to help women and children devastated by the January 12 earthquake in Haiti.

"I am not a humanitarian leader, but someone who wishes to improve the world in which we live," she said.

"I want to see first hand where the money is being invested," she added.
