U.S. Representative McCollum to Travel to Malawi

November 23, 2005

On Tuesday, Rep. Betty McCollum (D-Minn.) left for Malawi for a weeklong trip to assess the problems of HIV/AIDS and hunger. With 14 percent of its population infected with HIV, Malawi is facing a food shortage that charities fear will be the worst in a decade. "This visit is about translating statistics and policy into real mothers and children who have names and stories to tell," said McCollum, who serves on the International Relations subcommittee on Africa.
