UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Audrey Hepburn sits amidst severely malnourished children at a UNICEF-assisted feeding centre in the town of Baidoa, Somalia.
Ms. Hepburn completed a four day tour of Somalia and northern Kenya on 24 September, 1992 - visiting UNICEF-assisted feeding centres and primary health care facilities in Mogadiscio, Kismayo, and Baidoa - to bring world attention to the plight of children and women there.
