Paris Hilton’s Trip to Rwanda Postponed

Paris HiltonRwanda will have to wait for Paris Hilton’s help.

“Due to the restructuring of the Playing for Good Foundation, the philanthropic trip to Rwanda that the foundation had previously planned with Paris has been postponed,” the children’s charity said Thursday in a statement.

A staffer for Andy Gelb, a spokesman for the organization, said he was unavailable for comment.

The 26-year-old socialite who has promised to use her celebrity status for good causes was supposed to pack her bags for the African country next month. On her itinerary: visits to schools and health-care clinics.

“I’m scared, yeah. I’ve heard it’s really dangerous,” Hilton told Newsweek magazine earlier this month. “I’ve never been on a trip like this before.”

Hilton announced the mission in September, several months after serving a 23-day jail sentence for violating probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case.

“There are a lot of bad people in L.A. Before, my life was about having fun, going to parties it was a fantasy,” she told Newsweek. “But when I had time to reflect, I felt empty inside. I want to leave a mark on the world.”

    I think Paris she have another reason to postponed her trip, but she can’t worry or say about securiyt,because Rwanda is first country in subsaharian to security,
    yes she’s super start but she’not like former presedent Bill Clinton who visited Rwanda three times,or we can say Laura Bush,Madame of fomer premier minister of England,Bill Gate and so many celebrity like Bono,so i hope Paris she have another reason but not her security, people die every where in africa,South Africa,Zimbambe,nigeria,kenya but no body who die in Rwanda because of insecury
    so Paris don’t worry keep prepare you trip in country of thouthand hill.
    thanks.
