Bono turns spotlight on African crisis

November 25, 2002|From Associated Press

LINCOLN, Neb. — Bono will be in Nebraska next month for World AIDS Day.

The 42-year-old U2 lead singer will be in Lincoln on Dec. 1, said Nelson Okuku Miruka, president of Save Sub-Saharan Orphans, a volunteer group that raises money for African orphanages.

He'll present an evening program at the Lied Center for the performing arts to raise awareness of the continent's growing health crisis, Miruka said this week.

AIDS and African debt relief are two of Bono's top political causes.

He traveled to Africa in May with U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill to draw attention to the needs of the continent.
