Katharine McPhee Visits Africa!

McPhee Africa

Katharine McPhee is such a sweetheart!

Apparently there wasn't enough room for all her sweetheartin' here in the states, so she took it to Africa with Malaria No More!

She's in Africa right now visiting areas inflicted by the disease and distributing life-saving mosquito nets and malaria treatment medication! It's so sweet to see her join forces with the organization to fight the preventable and treatable disease, which kills one child every minute in Africa.

Which is an insane statistic.

She is traveling to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, a nation in Africa ravaged by the disease. Her goal is to visit a school she helped to build through her McPhee Outreach project!

It's been around four years, but apparently she got an email that some students were falling behind from missing school because of the malaria problem in the region. The headmaster was even forced to close the school for a period of time because she had a close call with the often deadly disease and needed time to recover! So scary!

Especially because the disease is so easily prevented.

We're glad she's doing her part!
