Melania Trump says she’ll promote child welfare in Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt in October on her first extended solo international mission.
The first lady discussed her plans Wednesday at a reception for the spouses of foreign leaders and others participating in the annual U.N. General Assembly.
“Oct. 1 will mark the first day of my solo visit to four beautiful and very different countries in Africa,” Mrs. Melania Trump said during brief remarks to several dozen guests in a reception room in a building near U.N. headquarters.
She said she looks forward to spreading the message of her “Be Best” child-welfare initiative throughout Africa. She launched the campaign earlier this year to focus on overall child well-being, with an emphasis on opioid addiction and online behavior.
The countries on her itinerary have worked closely with the U.S. Agency for International Development, which is helping organize the trip.
“Whether it is education, drug addiction, hunger, online safety or bullying, poverty or disease, it is too often children who are hit first, and hardest, across the globe,” Mrs. Melania Trump said. “Each of us hails from a country with its own unique challenges, but I know in my heart we are united by our commitment to raising the next generation to be happy, healthy and morally responsible adults.”
This visit is expected next month without president Donald J trump who raised eyebrows by calling African countries shit holes earlier this year though he came out on Wednesday and said that he and his wife love Africa.
