British pop star Joss Stone showed off her charitable side during a trip to Morocco by hosting a 'horse therapy' session for disabled children.

The soul singer was in the African country for the launch of her new world tour last month (Mar14) and she called in to the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad's (Spana) branch in Casablanca.

Stone observed the work of volunteers before agreeing to help out during a special equitherapy session, during which disabled children spend time with horses to help improve their health.

The singer says, "Before visiting the charity I had no idea just how much people rely on working animals here for their means of earning an income and transport. There's a huge need for Spana's free vet care, not only to help animals but also to help secure people's livelihoods, and it's showed me the real importance of low-tech aid solutions for Africa."
