Following in the footsteps of other celebrity UNICEF supporters, such as George Clooney and Angelina Jolie, Katy Perry went on her first trip with the organization this month.
“In less than one week here in Madagascar, I went from crowded city slums to the most remote villages and my eyes were widely opened by the incredible need for a healthy life -- nutrition, sanitation, and protection against rape and abuse -- which UNICEF are stepping in to help provide,” Perry said.
During her time in Madagascar, Perry visited a school in the village of Ampihaonana. She said that children and teachers will walk 45 minutes just to get to school.
On Monday, Perry shared one of her favorite moments from the trip on Twitter.
