Mia Farrow Calls For More Darfur Aid
Just a couple of months ago, actress and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Mia Farrow was in Chad to visit Sudanese refugees from Darfur. She went back again this month and she just came from a fact-finding mission in the Central African Republic and Chad. Mia has this to say about the situation:
â€œAlthough UNICEF and other aid agencies are doing what they can with the resources they presently have and continue to work under very dangerous conditions, more must be done. We have a serious crisis in the making. With knowledge surely comes responsibility. If we have the knowledge of the horrible situation here in Eastern Chad and do nothing, then we must face the ultimate responsibility for the ongoing pain, suffering and deaths here. With knowledge you can get involved in the process of stopping this,â€ Farrow stated.
Not only is she calling for more humanitarian aid from around the world, but she’s also encouraging the UN to step up and send a peacekeeping force in the troubled region of Darfur.
