Congratulations to Paris Hilton, who this November will take her international celebrity into the realm of humanitarian jet-setting. Move over Angelina, there's a hot new heart of 24K gold in town!

I wonder if Paris is taking them drugs and booze down there or if she's just going there so she can drive and drink in peace so she can feel like she's getting away with something I'm sure she will find some Drugs to get into that is her real reason why she's going their She's too self centered to think of anyone else! She made it clear that she only thinks of her self!!!!!!!!

Paris is really a lousy ambassador.It would be nice if she can give them money for schools and health care rather than just a photo op

Paris#1 shes no different to a non celeb!    

Paris is a good person, i mean she does make mistakes...but dont we all, i mean i make mistakes everyday! She only wants to help and yet she is still critisized for the good she does! yet if it was a non famous person... im sure no-1 would even care! Paris needs to be given a chance to prove her-self and as a singer i know what its like to be surrounded by unwanted people! it's not great.... she's photographed 24/7 it's like you can't even go to the toilet without someone watching. Good Luck Paris!

This is just another publicity stunt for sweet, and special Blondie of the Year. Paris has got to stay in the lime light, but has to keep her clothes on...what's next on the list of possibilities?? Porn, perfume, soft-core MTV video porn, party, pout... Maybe she can donate some of those oh-so-hot, hosed down burgers, to the orphans in Africa. Better yet, let her spend some time living in their conditions then maybe something good will come of her fame...and if possible, brains....

TMZ, the story is interesting, but using those suffering children is very stupid, and you people would not go unpunished. not from human beings but from God.

Ms. Hilton goes to Africa
By Belem Sessions

Socialite Paris Hilton arrived at the Hôtel des Milles Collines late Tuesday night after an 18 hour flight from JFK to Kigali’s International Airport. She arrived without the speculated loads of luggage; all ten pieces had been mistakenly sent to the Seychelles. The heiress found replacement clothing in the hotel’s souvenir shop; she wore Rwandan beer Mutzig and Primus t-shirts for the remainder of her week.
Though not well known in Rwanda for whatever it is that she does, Hilton’s name caused some apprehension in the small country. Rwandans still hold France responsible for its troubles and are not fond of French expatriates. Many learned with some relief that Hilton is American, and with some surprise that she does not actually speak French.
First on her itinerary was to visit an orphanage where she and the ministers of education and health took pictures with selected orphans. She spent around 15 minutes passing out tootsie pops, Bratz® dolls and lip-gloss to eager young girls. But when the orphans began to eat the strawberry flavored lip-gloss and play football with the Bratz® heads, it was time to go. She moved on to an AIDS clinic in downtown Kigali where her experience as a medical assistant on The Simple Life came to no use. The socialite looked uncomfortable and pensive as she spoke with dying patients about how her difficult time in a California prison had inspired her to help Rwandans by having their picture taken with her.
The wives of many ministers told Hilton that she looked fat and happy. Her eyes brimmed with tears through many interviews with local journalists who also exclaimed how très grosse she was. She was overheard whispering to her entourage that Rwandans were the rudest people she had ever met.
An interpreter explained to her that fat was actually a compliment and that it was a good thing because it meant she didn’t have AIDS. The interpreter did not explain the truth, which was that many Rwandans strongly believed that she in fact had AIDS both because of her thin frame and her reoccurring film roles.
Before leaving for Africa, Ms. Hilton was quoted as saying she would help Rwandan children by “bringing attention” with her. She would bring the attention; others would do the philanthropy. But for once the paparazzi did not want to follow her. Her own camera crew was left with very little footage of the heiress doing anything but looking pretty. In order to get the attention such a journey deserves, Hilton has bought airtime on E! to turn her “safari” into another reality show. Rwandan orphans replace simple Arkansas country folk as extras on another season of The Simple Life.
Hilton wanted to go on safari before leaving Africa but was told that most of the big game in Rwanda had been eaten during the civil war. She concluded her trip to the motherland by making a stop in South Africa to shop for diamonds and go on a wine-tasting tour. There she experienced a terrible reaction with her mefloquine and alcohol and promtly fell over and died.
