Her family is famed for building hotels، daily mail reported.

But Paris Hilton was building homes instead on Monday when she visited an earthquake-struck region in Mexico.

The 36-year-old visited San Gregorio، Xochimilco to deliver aid to the victims of the quake، which devastated the area on September 19.

The heiress brought hundreds of blankets، pillows، shoes، clothes، food and toys for the affected families.

She also donated enough money to build seven brand new homes.

'I feel that this is my second home، I've been coming to Mexico all my life،' she told the gathered crowd.

'I love the people، I think they are all beautiful، they have great hearts، they are beautiful inside and out، they are very genuine and incredible.'

Some 370 people were killed and more than 6،000 injured when the 7.1 magnitude quake struck.

'I'm sorry for what happened on that horrible September 19، day of the earthquake. My heart is with all of you and I want you to know that I think of you، I love you and that is why I came to support you today،' she added.

'When I heard what happened with the earthquake my heart broke، I was devastated.' 

During her visit، Paris spent time with the families، listening to their stories from the horrifying day. 

'I know there are people who are suffering and going through hard times، so every time I return I will do something to give back،' she continued.

'I am here to support these people. They have lost their homes، all of their belongings and family members. everything has been taken away. It's so important to help.' 

She added that she hoped to be a voice and raise awareness of the cause to help rebuild the community. 

'All the children were in awe of her، they were so thrilled and excited to meet her،' one witness said. 'Paris gave speeches that had all the people crying with her kind encouraging words of support.'

Paris is a frequent charity supporter; while serving as resident DJ at Amnesia in Ibiza over the summer she hosted a special Foam & Diamonds party just for kids، which raised more than $100،000 for APNEEF، a charity for children with special needs.
