Jill Biden travels to Africa to visit with Somali famine refugees


Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, traveled to eastern Kenya over the weekend to visit the world largest refugee camp, Dadaab, located near the Somali border. In just the last three months, more than 29,000 Somali children under the age of 5 have died from the effects of the famine. Dr. Biden represents the highest official to visit the area where more than 12 million people are in need of food and water.
I really hope her visit brings more attention and awareness to this terrible tragedy. To read more and found out how you can help, please visit the White House blog here.
