Bono departs on a ten-day trip to Africa next Tuesday, where he will see first-hand the effects of his debt relief campaign for the continent. The U2 frontman will assess poverty and disease in Lesotho, Rwanda, Tanzania, Nigeria, Mali and Ghana. Bono's philanthropic campaign -- including the spearheading of last summer's worldwide Live 8 concerts and the ONE campaign -- paid off last June when G8 finance ministers agreed to cancel the debts of eighteen economically-stagnant countries.
