Prince William and Kate to visit Denmark in November
- Filed under:
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will make a trip to Denmark in November to visit Unicef's emergency supply centre, according to St James' Palace.
The royal couple will visit the centre in Copenhagen - accompanied by the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark - in a bid to maintain global awareness of food shortages in East Africa.
More than 13 million people are being affected by starvation, and more areas in Africa are set to be declared as 'in famine' over the next few months.
Over 320,000 children are currently suffering from severe acute malnutrition and are at risk of death.
The Unicef supply centre in Copenhagen co-ordinates the delivery of emergency supplies to children in need across the world, with nutritional treatments for malnourishment, vaccines, supplementary foods, water, and medical kits.
Elhadj As Sy, Unicef's regional chief of Eastern and Southern Africa, told the Mirror: 'Right now, Unicef, along with many other partners, is working tirelessly to ensure that children's lives can be saved across East Africa.'
He applauded the public's generosity, but added that there 'is so much more to be done'.
If they have any leisure time set aside, the Duke and Duchess could enjoy some of Copenhagen's top attractions, like the famous Little Mermaid statue, the beautiful Tivoli Gardens, Stroget (the world's longest pedestrian shopping street), the majestic Rosenburg Castle, and the Round Tower - Europe's oldest observatory.
