Katharine Mcphee - Katharine Mcphee Heads To Africa To Fight Spread Of Malaria

Singer/actress Katharine Mcphee has embarked on a charity trip to Africa to help put a stop to the spread of malaria.
The Smash star and her husband Nick Cokas headed to Accra, Ghana on Sunday (25Mar12) on behalf of the Malaria No More non-profit organisation, for which MCPhee is a spokesperson, to distribute mosquito nets to areas most affected by the deadly disease.
They visited a health clinic on Wednesday (28Mar12) and attended a special ceremony known as a durbar, a formal gathering of village chiefs and important locals, where they were treated to a dance and drum performance.
MCPhee also took part in a school play about a boy who contracted malaria, portraying a doctor in the children's production, and was gifted with a handmade stool by the village's most senior chief.
