Katy Perry may be living the life of luxury, but she would never turn a blind eye to those less fortunate.
The singer, 28, recently traveled to Madagascar to support UNICEF and bring attention to the crisis the island’s been facing since 2009— and new photos of her touching journey prove her dedication to the cause.
Of her trip, the newly-single star said: "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. I am grateful to UNICEF for giving me the opportunity to see first-hand how their programmes make a real difference in children's lives. Support for UNICEF is saving children, I am a witness to it.”
Check out the sweet snapshots from Katy’s many Madagascar missions:
The "Firework" crooner visited school children and sat in on a few classes in a primary school that was rebuilt after being destroyed by a tropical cyclone.
Katy made a point of playing with the local children by showing off her jump roping skills.
The singer posed for a photo with a local family in between sitting in on a range of programs in education, nutrition, health, child protection, sanitation and hygiene.
Katy took part in simple sanitation activities by teaching the young locals how to properly wash their hands.
In front of a large group of fans, Katy pumped water from a well, which proved to be more difficult than she thought! After the strenuous workout, she flexed her biceps for the cheering crowd.
