Katy said in a statement, "In less than one week here in Madagascar, I went from crowded city slums to the most remote villages and my eyes were widely opened by the incredible need for a healthy life—nutrition, sanitation, and protection against rape and abuse—which UNICEF are stepping in to help provide. I am grateful to UNICEF for giving me the opportunity to see first-hand how their programs make a real difference in children's lives. Support for UNICEF is saving children, I am a witness to it."
