Los Angeles: Rapper Nicki Minaj took time out to visit sick fans like eight-year-old Zion Harvey, who is recovering from surgery last month.
The youngster lost his hands to a bacterial infection as a toddler.
The hip-hop star, who posted photos on herself with the kids at the hospital on social media, called upon her followers and fans to volunteer at local hospitals and put a smile on patients' faces.
"If you need something to do in your spare time, try this... I left feeling so inspired by these incredibly strong, beautiful, dynamic children. Pray for them, you guys. They would've melted your heart," she tweeted.
