(CNN)— Cindy McCain said Monday she will make a humanitarian trip to Rwanda next week.
The wife of presumptive Republican nominee John McCain plans to spend four days on the ground in the war-torn African nation on a trip organized by the non-partisan ONE campaign, as part of a group visiting USAID health clinics, schools, and an orphanage. Former Senator Tom Daschle will be joining the trip on behalf of Democrat Barack Obama’s campaign.
Daschle and former Senator Bill Frist are co-chairmen of the group’s ONE Vote ‘08 initiative.
Last month, Cindy McCain – who has long been involved with international relief organizations - made a similar journey to Vietnam with Operation SMILE.
