Oxfam Ambassador Scarlett Johansson Visits Drought-Stricken Africa

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(BOSTON) -- Oxfam Ambassador and Actress Scarlett Johansson visited Africa this week to get a first-hand account of Oxfam's life-saving work in the drought-impacted areas of Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia where 13 million people are at risk.

Johansson, an Oxfam Ambassador since 2004, visited the Dadaab refugee camp, where tens of thousands of Somali refugees arrived.

"The scale of poverty in Dadaab is overwhelming," said Johansson. "I met countless women like Hawa, a local community leader, who lamented the seemingly endless struggle of the Somali people, as refugees of war and starvation and now left to suffer everyday life with the very barest of essentials."

Johansson also visited the Turkana region of northern Kenya during her trip.
