Along with Louis-Georges Arsenault, Director of UNICEF Emergency Operations, and Maulid Aden Warfa – Emergency Specialist for UNICEF Central and Southern Somalia (via Skype from Nairobi) – Kidjo will be part of a live chat on Livestream, Facebook, and Twitter (#askUnicef) about the situation in Somalia and the Horn of Africa, in which everyone is encouraged to join in and ask UNICEF questions, where a child survival crisis has taken millions of children to the brink.
Find out more about the crisis in the Horn of Africa – how it happened, what is happening, what needs to be done – and its impact on children. Angelique Kidjo will bring her own experience as an African, who has travelled extensively to developing countries. Louis-Georges, who just returned from the region and Maulid, who is currently based in Nairobi and is frequently in Somalia, will be sharing their own perspectives on the current situation.
The live chat takes place on Wednesday, August 17, 2011 – 10:30 to 11.30 AM (ET). To join, click here.
