Mel Gibson -- Helping Poor Guatemalan Kids

6/8/2011 8:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson has touched down in Guatemala -- where he's  doing work for a kids charity -- the same kids charity he did work for to complete his court-ordered community service.

Mel completed his 16 hours of community service several months ago with Mending Kids. The community service was part of  the plea deal he struck for allegedly striking ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

Mending Kids International provides medical care to underprivileged children. Robyn Gibson is a former President of the Malibu chapter.  Mel and Robyn have been doing work with the charity for years.

Unlike some of the Wanna-be Celebrities out there, I bet Mel finishes his Community Service.

I would hope so seeing as how it's only 16 hours (that's 2 full work days) and according to this story he has until tomorrow to finish.

This is the first time I heard of someone going OUT OF THE COUNTRY to do their community service. WHY is that? I wonder if he even did his assigned service--who will check on him? Celebrity Justice.

By the way, the article states he completed his service hours months ago. This he's doing on his own.

Good for him! That's a charity that he and his wife have been supporting for awhile. He is just a person and doesn't deserve all the **** everyone is giving him. People are mad at things he said but I guess it's okay for them to say whatever they want about Mel? How is that right? Move on everyone. Let him do what he's best at-----making awesome movies!!!!!!!!!!!!

All the charity work in the world isn't going to make me want to watch a Mel Gibson film again, court-ordered or not.

@ Char, I believe TMZ just updated the article because earlier it clearly said he has until tomorrow to finish. Regardless, I'm glad to see him doing the right thing

Ew Mel psycho trolls EVERYWHERE.

If you would stop kissing his ass long enouth to REALLY check out his WHOLE history you'd know he has been doing this kind of crazyness for 3 decades.

Nothing can stop the Mel apologists from looking like a bunch of mindless ***ers swallowing his publicist's spin!
