Peter Andre visits Zanzibar on a mission to help bring better healthcare to the island
After a chance meeting between Peter Andre and the chairman of Health Improvement Project Zanzibar, the Mysterious Girl singer agreed to get behind the charitable cause.
The two men have been visiting Zanzibar together so that Peter can see the project and the difference it makes to the 60,000 residents.
Naturally, the tanned singer took along his TV crew to film his good work for his ITV2 show Peter Andre: My Life.
As well as writing about his experience in his New! magazine column, the 38-year-old has been busy tweeting about what he has been doing.
The first image that he posted was of him sitting with four children outside an orphanage.
He said: ‘Here I am in Zanzibar working with my friend Dr Ru. We WILL make a difference’.
His trip to the area was eye opening as he met many people there suffering from a variety of illnesses.
He posted a picture of himself in a hospital and said: ‘One of the many malaria infected children I have met in Zanzibar with @DrRuMac . Emotional but incredibly rewarding.’
Whilst on the island Peter made time to stop at one of his idols homes as he stood outside the house that Freddie Mercury once lived in.
The former Queen front man was born in Zanzibar and raised in that house until his family moved to India.
Andre obviously enjoyed spending time in the area and was moved by his experience.
He said: ‘Loving Zanzibar. Visiting a school in makunduchi . One of best days ever today )).’
Along his trip, the father-of-two visited a school and local villages that have benefited from the charity.
The reality TV star told peterandre.com: ‘It has been so emotional but incredibly rewarding. It has certainly put life into perspective. I really want to help make a difference here.’
