Harry Potter - Harry Potter Actress Donates Her Time To Africa Charity

Subscribe to Harry Potter alerts

Harry Potter actress Bonnie Wright, known best for her role as Ginny Weasley in the HP adventures, has followed up her life-changing role in the wizarding series by heading to Senegal to hopefully change a few lives herself as part of an Oxfam-led charity trip, the Oxford Mail reports.

Bonnie and members of the charity based in Oxford have set off on a goodwill trip to a part of Senegal that is currently experiencing extensive food shortages. Bonnie is visiting a part of Northern Africa where more than 18 million people spread across nine countries across the region are threatened with severe food shortages, among the victims include close to a million children who are suffering from acute malnutrition already. The next harvest in the region isn't expected until later this month or the beginning of October, meaning that Miss Wright is visiting the area during the harshest period of the shortage.

The generous 21-year-old wont finish her goodwill campaign there though, as she will continue her work for the charity back home when she will feature as one of the stars appearing at an evening of storytelling and performance at Oxford Playhouse in celebration of Oxfam's 70th birthday. Also lending a hand on the night will be celebrity chef Raymond Blanc, Private Eye editor and Have I Got News For You regular Ian Hislop and Sex in the City actress Kristin Davis.
