Audio Slideshow: Dr. Biden Sees the Neighborhoods of Kenya

A moving audio slideshow of Dr. Biden touring the tragically impoverished Kibera area of Nairobi.

Dr. Jill Biden toured the Kibera area of Nairobi, Kenya earlier today. It’s one of the largest slums in the world at just about 1.5 million people living in an area about 2 square miles total. Very few people have electricity or running water and many of the residents are living with HIV.

Watch this slideshow and hear directly from the Second Lady about her impressions of the day, meeting with the young women, and her walk through the village.

We’ll be in Kenya for a couple more days – be sure to check back for more "On Board" updates from the Vice President and Dr. Biden's trip.

Annie Tomasini is Press Secretary to Dr. Jill Biden.
