Selena Gomez is taking a trip to Africa and not just for pleasure, but to help others.

The singer/actress will head to the Democratic Republic of Congo as part of her humanitarian work for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

Gomez was motivated to pursue the trip thanks to Joel Madden. “I was talking to Joel Madden and he works with UNICEF and he went to the Congo. He said it was the most intense thing he had ever done in his entire life—and the best thing he had ever done,” she revealed in an interview with E! Online.

This isn’t the first time the 19-year-old has left the country to benefit others. “We first went to Ghana and then we went to Chile. In April, we’re going to go somewhere a little harder, the Congo…The first trips were to ease me into it.”

For about two years, Gomez has been an ambassador for UNICEF. Recently, she put on a UNICEF benefit show at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, where more than $200,000 was raised.

You could say Gomez is making children’s dreams comes true and as she wrote on her Facebook page, “We’re helping to save the lives of children all over the world.”

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
