Ivanka Trump honored victims of the Ethiopian Airlines crash on Monday by attending a special ceremony and laying a wreath to the dead. During her visit to Addis Ababa, Ivanka stopped off at a cathedral in the Ethiopian capital to pay tribute to the 157 people killed when the plane crashed soon after takeoff last month. The president's daughter and senior adviser visited Holy Trinity Cathedral, where she met with religious leaders and laid a wreath to mourn the dead. 

A total of 21 United Nations staffers and 12 aid workers were killed last month when the Boeing 737 Max crashed minutes after takeoff from Addis Ababa en route to Nairobi. Airlines and countries around the world have grounded Boeing 737 Max jets or banned them from their airspace following the crash. A similar crash involving the same Boeing model plane crashed into the waters off Indonesia last October, killing all 189 on board.

American Airlines announced on Sunday that it was canceling 115 flights per day through mid-August because of ongoing problems with the Boeing 737 Max aircraft. The announcement made American the second domestic major carrier to cancel Max flights through the busy summer season. Southwest Airlines, the largest operator of Boeing jets, announced last week that it would cancel its Max flights. The U.S. and around another 40 countries grounded Boeing's 737 Max plane in mid-March after the deadly plane crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.

The First Daughter touched down in Addis Ababa early on Sunday and took to Instagram to share photos of her first meeting the head of the Women's Global Development and Prosperity Initiative. The WGDPI initiative aims to train women worldwide to help them get well-paying jobs. Ivanka is due to visit Ethiopia and Ivory Coast over the next three days and is via flying commercial airlines, rather than using a US State Department aircraft.

Her schedule includes a women's economic empowerment summit in Ivory Coast as well as site visits and meetings with political leaders, executives and female entrepreneurs in both countries. Yesterday she visited a coffee shop and textile company in Addis Ababa. It was her first stop in Africa on a four-day trip to Ethiopia and Ivory Coast on behalf of a White House project intended to boost 50 million women in developing countries by 2025.
