It appears that Paris Hilton will have to wait for the right time to bring her celerity status to Rwanda. The Playing for Good Foundation, which initially invited her to make the visit, announced Thursday October 25th the cancellation of the highly anticipated trip.

"Due to the restructuring of the Playing for Good Foundation, the philanthropic trip to Rwanda that the foundation had previously planned with Paris Hilton has been postponed," the organization said in a statement.

"Paris has been a loyal and gracious supporter of Playing For Good but the foundation has to regrettably reschedule this trip. Playing for Good would like to thank Ms. Hilton for her generosity and her continued support of this initiative and is looking forward to rescheduling the trip with her at a later time," the organization went on adding.

Paris announced last month she'll be going to Rwanda in November after finishing work on her movie, "Repo! The Genetic Opera," upon being invited by Scott Lazerson of Playing for Good organization, which he helped found in 2006 to help high-end business and entertainment personalities become involved in a variety of charities benefiting children and families in need.

"There's so much need in that area, and I feel like if I go, it will bring more attention to what people can do to help," the heiress said at that time.

No new date has been set by now though.
