Former President George W. Bush and U2 frontman Bono look like BFFs. Bush posted a photo of his new best friend on his Instagram.
U2 has been touring and was just in Houston last week. After that Bono stopped by and met with President Bush and his wife Laura at their Texas ranch. They talked about how their humanitarian efforts to combat disease and poverty in Africa could be even greater.
Bono co-founded One, which is described as “a campaigning and advocacy organization of nearly eight million people around the world taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. We believe the fight against poverty isn’t about charity, but about justice and equality.”
Bush’s administration launched PEPFAR (President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief) in 2003 to “address the HIV/AIDS pandemic that threatened to wipe out an entire generation on the continent of Africa.”
These are two great guys no doubt!
