Mel Gibson will perform his court-ordered community service at a charity organization run by his estranged wife ... TMZ has learned.

As part of his sentence, Mel must complete 16 hours of community service between now and June 9 -- and he's chosen to pitch in at Mending Kids International ... where, according to their website, Robyn Gibson serves as the President of the Board of Directors.

The charity is dedicated to providing life-changing surgical care to children in need.

UPDATE: A rep for Mending Kids tells TMZ ... Robyn finished her term as President in December ... and is now in charge of the Malibu branch of the charity.

The rep adds, ""Mel and Robyn Gibson have been tremendous supporters of Mending Kids International over the years and have provided life-changing surgeries to children across the globe."

MEL'S TACTIC TODAY DOES NOT STOP OKSANA AT ALL FROM USING ALL EVIDENCE IN CIVIL CASE!

FROM TMZGossip's post:

nothing from today stops Oxy from filing a civil suit.

the only thing she can't do is claim that he "admitted" to the battery by pleading no contest.

any collected depositions and legal do***entation can be used.
witnesses can be called

the 2 biggest differences are

1. that Gibson can't refuse to testify in a civil trial (and you might want to look at what happens if he tries to avail himself of the '5th amendment) -- and

2. she is only required to tip the scales to 51%

Mel chose Oksana over his wife. He got her pregnant, so you can't compare the two. Thank god for expensive lawyers.

All Russian woman have cracked teeth, like the British and Canadians. They can't prove a gentleman like Mel ever did such a thing.

Fidel's'niece could not have put it better This will drive this glum c##t mental, Although Mel and Robyn have separated they remain still good friends and close. This is great news and as for her going to go for a civil case < She's gonna loose remember Mel and Robyn hired private investigators to look into her past they HAVE THE DIRT ON HER and she'll get nothing.

Her ever changing stories and lies will come back and bite her. Remember there was 'BLOOD EVERYWHERE AND MEL STRANGLED HER USED HER AS A PUNCHING BAG"

I could go on all day but we know her lies.

I am pleased this is now over for The Gibson Family and they can all move on with there lives.

yo, your posts reek of ignorance and greed,
But then that's just your sorry ***** speed.

Can't get enough revenge after he washed his hands of you,
Once he realized he was being used & was just a useful tool.

Look at the 43 lawyers pulled into your stinking scheme,
Geez, how many called you out, said no to your dream?

Go find another rich guy to leech off of, another place to play,
But do remember your game's exposed, tough, no more pay day!

I'm glad Mr. Gibson gets to do his community service at Mending Kids International. They are a legitimate charity organization that helps kids in need from all over. Mr. and Mrs. Gibson have been personally involved (time & money) for many years. I'm also happy about it because he will get to be with people who know him, believe in him and love him while he is contributing to something worthwhile. Sixteen hours : )

I am VERY uncomfortable with him doing his community service with an organ that his ex-wife is connected to in ANY way.

It seems likely they would falsify how long he's actually spending there just to "assist" him.

"Mr. Gibson?" I laughed so hard at this I choked.

His name is Mel and he's a convicted batterer. We don't use Mr. anyone here in the USA. Must be Great Britain.

Organ?? Robin is not his ex-wife. She is his wife.

Your speculation is about as good as your grasp on the english language.

That's not really a punishment, is it? I mean, he probably donates his time to his wife/ex-wife's charity anyway. Pick up garbage. THAT is punishment. What's he going to do at the charity that makes it a punishment in any sense?
