Mandy Moore joins fight against malaria in Africa
Los Angeles, Oct 3 : Actress Mandy Moore has joined hands with UN to fight against malaria in Africa.
The star has teamed up with UN Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign and joined workers in handing out insecticide-treated mosquito nets. She spent the last week with aid workers in the Central African Republic.
“It was an honour to join this trip to help prevent malaria, which continues to kill nearly one million people every year,” aceshowbiz.com quoted Moore as saying.
“This week, I’ve met mothers who have lost children to malaria and worry daily about losing others. It is life-changing to be able to give them nets to protect their babies from malaria-carrying mosquitoes while they sleep,” she added.
