Administrator Samantha Power Travels to East Africa July 22-24, 2022

From July 22 through July 24, Administrator Samantha Power travels to East Africa, a region where an unprecedented drought is pushing millions to the brink of starvation and food insecurity is being further exacerbated by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

During her trip, Administrator Power will visit communities grappling with the loss of crops and livestock and learn more about the impacts the drought has on water supply, health, and livelihoods. With an estimated seven million children suffering from severe malnutrition in the Horn of Africa, the Administrator will also visit a health facility providing integrated medical care and nutritional support and travel to a USAID supported emergency food distribution site.
