sienna miller, congoSienna Miller is traveling the Democratic Republic of Congo and reporting back her experiences for the social action website, Take Part. The actress is seeking to raise awareness of violence in the country. Since 1998, over four million people have died in a conflict that continues to claim 45,000 every month due to violence, starvation, and disease. Here’s a brief highlight for her first blog entry:

I don’t really know what I expected the Democratic Republic of Congo to be like. Rwanda felt peaceful, but upon crossing the border, the violence which I have read so much about became apparent. The people weren’t hostile, but we were greeted by a truckload of army guys with rocket launchers on their laps. And our head of security, Martin Gilmour, who has almost definitely seen it all. I’m traveling with my best friend Tori, Margeret Aguirre from the International Medical Corps and David Serota our cinematographer. We get a security briefing before leaving the border: don’t go anywhere alone, be smart, body language is important, a smile goes a long way.. .and if we get a gun out in our faces, to remain calm and let Martin do the talking. The country feels so different to Rwanda… bustling markets, smoke, chickens and goats running freely, men and women holding hands, and I smile at the universal language of love.
