MUSICIAN and campaigner Bob Geldof will visit Ethiopia with the charity Unicef.

He will make a five-day trip to the country later this month to visit projects and meet aid workers.

Recent Unicef figures suggest that 14 million Ethiopians are dependent on food aid and the charity says long-term development is hampered by debt and unfair trade.

Geldof will visit therapeutic feeding centres in the south and projects aimed at making water safe to drink.

He will also meet a group of girls benefiting from a Saturday morning tutorial programme and visit anti-Aids clubs.
