Dublin - Rory McIlroy will spend part of his week before the Masters on a humanitarian mission in Haiti.

McIlroy said on Monday he will meet with children and their families April 1-2 to see how their lives have changed since the 2010 earthquake that ravaged the country. McIlroy also made a trip to Haiti before going to the US Open in 2011. He won his first major at Congressional with a record score.

McIlroy is an Ireland ambassador to UNICEF and has geared his own charity work toward children.

The 23-year-old from Northern Ireland said he is excited to return. He called Haiti an inspiring and humbling country where children face daily struggles. McIlroy hopes his presence can create international awareness of the plight Haitian children are facing.
