Selena Gomez: Congo Trip in April!

Selena Gomez: Congo Trip in April!

In between working on a few new movies and writing new tunes, Selena Gomez will be heading to the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa.

The 19-year-old musician/actress tells EOnline about her upcoming trip for UNICEF, “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.”

Selena has previously helped out the country — in 2009, she attended the Raise Hope for the Congo event in L.A. to help raise awareness about sexual violence against women and girls in the country.

She added about the trip, “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.”
