Washington, Dec 11 (ANI): Singer Cher reportedly used her time off following the scrapping of Las Vegas show to launch a charity mission for orphans in South Asia.

The 62-year-old singer axed a number of gigs at the Colosseum at Caesar’’s Palace in October (08) owing to her illness from an allergy related to Sin City’’s winds.

But when doctors asked her to cancel a series of concerts, she agreed, but rather then taking rest, the singer flew off to Nepal to help children in need.

“Cher absolutely hates downtime. She was on heavy antibiotics and her throat was killing her, but she was determined to use her time off to help others, Contactmusic quoted a source as telling the National Enquirer.

The source added: “Cher genuinely wants to help the less fortunate. She decided that her suffering was nothing compared to the orphans in Nepal who were waiting to see her.” (ANI)
