Katharine McPhee in Africa for Malaria No More

“Smash” star Katharine McPhee is currently spending some time in Africa in support of Malaria No More.

The singer and actress is visiting a school she helped build in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso through her McPhee Outreach project as well as other areas heavily affected by malaria; during each visit, she’s distributing malaria medication and mosquito nets courtesy of Vestergaard Frandsen.

McPhee’s visit came after she received an email that said students at the once-successful school were missing class due to malaria. Even the headmistress was forced to close the school for a short period to recover from a particularly close call with the disease.
