streep.jpgAttention must be paid; and celebrities are doing their fair share lately of exposing the crisis in Darfur and making sure you know about it The new duo to join the cause are Meryl Streep and Tony Bennett who have launched a national TV campaign for the UN Refugee Agency. From the article,

“Streep and Bennett are appealing to Americans to donate to USA for U.N. Refugee Agency’s relief effort, which provides food and shelter for the millions of people who have fled their homes since fighting broke out in the Sudanese region in 2003.

“They say the situation in Darfur is deteriorating. Let me translate: People are dying. We must do more than just watch the news,” Bennett says in the ads, which feature his song “If I Ruled The World.”

“Don’t be distracted. Don’t turn away. Don’t be overwhelmed. Don’t be too busy. Don’t delay. Darfur can’t wait. Go to www.unrefugees.org,” Streep says in new public service ads.”

The situation in Darfur is at a standstill for now. There are troops from both the UN and countries like Australia in place, but their ability to assist is limited. What’s most pressing is the massive humanitarian disaster unfolding with such necessities as clean water and food in short supply. Please take a look at the Aid Darfur website for more information. Streep’s video is below.
