First Lady

The First lady of the United States of America, Melania Trump, has announced that she will be embarking on a solo visit without her husband to Africa this October.

She revealed this yesterday being Wednesday,26th September 2018 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. 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. 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.”

She offered no details on her activities in each country, and did not say when she would be returning to Washington.
