bransonRichard Branson has posted a new blog entry on his website saying that he will now be taking over fasting duties for Mia Farrow after doctors told her to stop immediately. The famous actress and activist has been fasting on only liquids in order to raise awareness for the horrible crisis unfolding in Darfur.

Said Branson,  “I have been asked by Mia to take over the fast starting next week, but I have also now asked Mia to stop and I am starting my three day fast today to continue to ask world leaders to take immediate action and demand that international aid is restored.”

“I’m honoured to be taking over the fast for the next three days from Mia Farrow in her courageous stance to support the people of Darfur.  Over a year and a half ago, I travelled to Darfur and was horrified by the stories that people of all ages shared with us. Young children had watched their entire family get killed and then had to survive on their own in unimaginable conditions. I was humbled and inspired by the courage of the Darfuri people and the commitment of the aid organisations that were working on the frontlines. Now, with 13 aid organisations expelled from the country, over 1m people are at grave risk. We cannot stand and watch as 1m people suffer. We all need to stand up and demand that international aid is restored and that the people of Darfur are protected and given the chance to live in peace.

“Please join us and get involved in supporting the people of Darfur by going to www.fastdarfur.org and taking action.”

Great work, Richard — and our best to Mia too as she recovers from this latest inspiring effort.
