Picture of Clay in Somalia and Article at UNICEF's Website

UNICEF's first article about Clay's visit to Somalia has been published at the UNICEF website. Included with that article is a picture of Clay talking with a nine-year-old girl named Rhama while he visited the Somaliland Cultural and Sports Association in Hargeisa, North West Somalia.

We read in the article some of the things that impressed Clay as he toured the country for UNICEF:

“In a country that’s better known for conflict, insecurity, drought and floods,” said Mr. Aiken, “it’s truly remarkable that UNICEF is still able to make a difference to the health, education and well-being of Somali children.”
In addition, Clay commented on how important he feels it is for the American people to realize that the people in Somalia want the same things as we do for our children:
‘Now that I have seen Somalia for myself, I feel it is important for the American public to remember that the Somali people have the same dreams for their children that we do. Somali families still want the best for their children and people really want to help bring about change. Though the situation in Somaliland is less dangerous for children than in the south, the country is one of the most desperate in the world. The country has been without a functioning government for almost twenty years. Fortunately, UNICEF has always been there and continues to provide the support needed to make a difference. No other organization is more capable of making such a difference than UNICEF."
Clay's Daily Double will keep you informed of everything concerning Clay's trip as it is made available.
