Mandy Moore Goes to Africa to Help Fight Malaria 

Photo Courtesy - Storefront Records(AFRICA) -- Mandy Moore says she learned a valuable lesson last week while she was in Africa. Moore was assisting the United Nations Foundation's "Nothing but Nets" campaign, which provides bed nets that protect people from malaria-carrying mosquitoes. Malaria is the number-one killer of refugees in Africa, though Moore says the spread of the disease is "entirely preventable."

Speaking to reporters during a teleconference Friday from Africa, Moore said, "I will be tirelessly returning home with the message that we can prevent this disease, and we can save lives, and we just need everyone's involvement."
