Africa Trip Postponed

Posted on by YFC Lincoln

Unfortunately my (Matt Schulte) trip to Africa was cancelled this week. I was supposed to travel to Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi. The State Department issued a warning for travel to Burundi due to the famine in Samalia.

I have come to discover that Burundi played a role in settling a civil war in Somalia. In 2009 there were some retalitory acts in Burundi. Now that Somalia is under a severe famine some Somalian refugees are ending up in Burudi leading to a fear of increase in violence. While there has been a slight increase in violence, we decided to just postpone the trip until January or March of this coming year.
