Accompanied by her daughter Jenna, Mrs. Bush is this week visiting areas that have benefited from U.S. AIDS funding - including the west African nations of Mali and Senegal, where she spent Tuesday, as well as Zambia in southern Africa.

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency’s most recently funded project in Mozambique, Together Against Malaria (TAM), was the focus and highlight of a meeting held by United States first lady Laura Bush the morning of June 27 in Mozambique.

Representatives from ADRA and its local project partner, the Inter-Religious Campaign against Malaria in Mozambique (IRCMM), as well as other groups, joined an estimated 250 people in welcoming Laura Bush to Maputo Seminary in Maputo, Mozambique, where she discussed the overarching goals of the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and its funding of an inter-faith project to combat the deadly disease in the African country.
