Last week, McIlroy was surpassed by American ace golfer Tiger Woods as the world`s number one, it added.
McIlroy has been a UNICEF ambassador for two years and first visited Haiti in 2011 to see the devastation caused by the earthquake of 2010, which killed or injured thousands and left more than a million people homeless.
