Michelle Obama Visits HIV/AIDS Clinic In Botswana

“Michelle Obama on Friday began the second leg of her weeklong visit to Africa by wielding a brush to help paint a mural” at the Botswana-Baylor Children’s Clinical Center of Excellence in the capital city of Gaborone, the Associated Press reports. The clinic serves 4,000 children and their families who have been affected by HIV/AIDS, according to the news service (Superville, 6/24).

Obama “painted a sun on a panorama of scenes of children playing, homes and blue sky” with youth who are members of the clinic’s “Teen Club,” a support program for children and teens affected by HIV/AIDS, according to MSNBC.com (6/24).
