Katharine McPhee: Malaria No More in Africa!

Katharine McPhee spends time with kids at a school during a recent trip to Africa with Malaria No More.

The 28-year-old Smash star – who declared the organization her charity of choice for 2012 – traveled to Ghana before heading to Burkina Faso to distribute mosquito nets to areas affected by the disease.

In Ouagadougou, Katharine planned to visit a school she helped build through her McPhee Outreach Project. The school had been flourishing until some students started falling behind after missing school because of the malaria problem in the region.

“[The nets] will be put to good use – and please know you will always have a home back here in Ghana!” a health director told Katharine, who also participated in a formal gathering of village chiefs called a durbar.
