It appears that nothing would stop Paris Hilton from visiting Rwanda, not even organization restructuring. The socialite has, despite the recent cancellation of her upcoming visit to Rwanda, said she's heading for the African country sometime next year.

In an interview posted on the Website of the syndicated entertainment TV show "Extra," Paris said "I want to travel the world. I feel like there's a lot I can do, and a lot I can do to help."

Paris then went on saying, "We were supposed to be going in November, but then the charity is doing restructuring and figuring things out. It's going to be for next year. I know (Rwanda) went through a lot of traumatic experiences, and I feel like if I go there, I can help save some people's lives."

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.

However, The Playing for Good Foundation announced last 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.
