US First Lady Melania Trump has announced she will visit Malawi during her solo tour of Africa this October. She will also visit Ghana, Kenya and Egypt.
She called them “four beautiful and very different countries” when talking about the details at a meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
Mrs Trump said the trip will be organised with the US government’s international aid agency and would be part of her Be Best campaign, which aims to improve child welfare, especially when it comes to online behaviour and addiction to opioids.
“Oct. 1 will mark the first day of my solo visit to four beautiful and very different countries in Africa,” Mrs. Trump said during brief remarks to several dozen guests attending the event near U.N. headquarters.
She said she looks forward to spreading the message of her “Be Best” child-welfare initiative. She launched the campaign in May to focus on overall child well-being, with an emphasis on opioid addiction and online behavior.
The countries on her itinerary work closely with the U.S. Agency for International Development, which is helping organize the trip, she said.
