In the news earlier this week for her efforts to promote cell phone recycling, Scarlett Johansson has also just completed a four-day trip to the country of Rwanda. The actress was there on behalf of the organization (RED) to better understand the health crisis there and draw attention to the continuing fight against AIDS in Africa.

“It was important for me to come here and understand the issue we’re up against firsthand,” she said. “It’s not until you’ve had the privilege of meeting healthcare providers who are fighting the daily battle, heard from people who are now getting antiretroviral drugs to stay alive, and met mothers whose babies are born healthy because they received treatment that stopped transmission of HIV, that you understand that we absolutely can do something to reverse the AIDS crisis in African countries.”

Johansson visited AIDS clinics in the country and worked alongside volunteers in assisting those in need. She continued: “I came here with an open mind, wanting to listen, understand and learn; I leave with the overwhelming understanding that the small action of making a (RED) choice in your purchases in the West has an enormous impact on the lives of people in countries like Rwanda.”
