Tomorrow, join UNICEF for a live chat on Livestream, Facebook, and Twitter (#askUnicef) about the situation in Somalia and the Horn of Africa, in which all are encouraged to join in and ask UNICEF questions, where a child survival crisis has taken millions of children to the brink.

WHEN: Wednesday, August 17, 2011 – 10:30 to 11.30 AM (New York Time)

WHO: Ms. Angelique Kidjo, Singer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador
Mr. Louis-Georges Arsenault, Director of UNICEF Emergency Operations
Mr. Maulid Aden Warfa, Emergency Specialist for UNICEF Central and Southern Somalia (via Skype from Nairobi)

WHY:  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.
