Ben Affleck Raises Awareness To Troubled African Nation (RDC)

Message par Silver le Mar 23 Mar - 1:39

Ca vient de E.T (Entertainment Tonight) une emission traite rarement de ce genre de sujet. Mr Affleck utilise son star power pour toucher des consciences qui sont souvent plus concentrees sur Paris Hilton et consort. Est ce que le Congolais de la diaspora peut aussi etre conscientiser par le geste de Ben Affleck qui lutte pour la RDC depuis quelques annees maintenant? Apres tout c'est notre pays.

Ben Affleck is lending his efforts to the African nation of Congo by launching the new initiative. Read on for details.
The Academy Award winner has launched the Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI), which supports Congolese organizations that help survivors of rape and sexual violence, helps reintegrated child soldiers into their communities, increases access to health care and education, promotes economic opportunity and creates community-level peace and reconciliation programs.
"The situation in eastern Congo has been neglected for far too long -- it is one of the worst humanitarian tragedies in the world," said Affleck, who returned today from a five-day trip to the region. "I brought together this unique collection of partners in order to bring their experience in humanitarian relief and sustainable development to bear as we focus like never before on local solutions to challenges in this region. Right now, the attention paid to this crisis doesn't match the needs of those affected by it. We will raise that attention level, and work with the extraordinary Congolese people who are making a positive difference in their own communities."
