WWE Diva Wrestlers In Rwanda For Charity
Two of the top wrestling divas jetted to Kigali Rwanda to visit refugee camps as part of their alliance with the United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign to help raise awareness and funds to fight malaria in sub-Saharan Africa.
The World Wrestling Entertainment divas are Alicia Fox and Natalya. The professional wrestlers will help distribute life-saving bed nets to help protect refugee families, who are fleeing conflict in neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo, from malaria.
They will also learn about the humanitarian situation in the country with the help of United Nations Refugee Agency (UNCHR).
According to the press statement, Chris Helfrich, Director of Nothing But Nets said, "We're proud to show the WWE Divas-and WWE fans everywhere-how malaria prevention tools like bed nets keep families safe. With more than 140 million social media fans, WWE and its Divas have an incredible opportunity to spread the buzz about stopping malaria."
Adding, "Refugees already face unimaginable hardships. A simple bed net can stop mothers and children from worrying about a deadly mosquito bite."
