Watch Christina Aguilera discuss her trip to Rwanda to help end hunger. 

Christina Aguilera knew visiting war-torn Rwanda would be eye-opening. But it wasn't until she spent time in Kigali, Rwanda, on a hunger relief mission this June – visiting refugee camps and seeing the severe poverty firsthand – that she discovered just how profoundly moving the experience would be. 

"This trip came at a time when I really needed to step away and connect with bigger issues in the world, [and] this trip really touched me in a way I never felt before," says Aguilera, who is the global spokesperson for Yum! Brands, (parent company of KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut) World Hunger Relief effort and an Ambassador Against Hunger for the UN World Food Programme.
