Current U.S. President Barack Obama and his predecessor, George W. Bush, have both been in Africa recently. Buzzfeed has pictures from one event each.

Bush helped clean, paint, and restore a women’s health clinic, and promoted cancer screening programs.

Obama stood in Nelson Mandela’s former prison cell, looked through the bars, and wrote a note.
