What do you get when you combine £25,000 of Mick Jagger‘s money, a song by UK’s hip-hop group Mattafix, and support from celebrities like Matt Damon and Fergie? You get a music video that’s trying to change the world.

Living Darfur is the first pop video to be filmed at a refugee camp, and it’s goal is to continue to raise awareness on the crisis situation. It was launched on September 16, Global Day for Darfur, hoping to also catch the eye of the UN as it prepared to open for general assembly.

Since then, 10 African Union peacekeepers in the region have been killed. Though there are plans in place to have the AU and the UN join forces in the region, many say that it is not happening fast enough and sufficient resources are not available to get the job done properly.

The situation in Darfur is an extremely complex one, with over 200,000 people dead and another 2 million displaced. I found this AllAfrica.com article to provide a good overview of what has happened recently.
