The beauty, who was once engaged to Nick Cannon, is an ambassador for Shine on Sierra Leone, an organisation which aims to help reduce maternal and infant mortality rates in the poverty-stricken country, which has been left devastated following the 1991-2001 civil war.

And Ebanks hopes to travel to West Africa to help construct a medical centre to provide better healthcare for new and expectant mothers.

She tells Star magazine, "When you hear 400,000 women die from pregnancy or childbirth, it's almost insane.

"I want to build a hospital and help rehabilitate the hospitals there."
