Ben Affleck is continuing his efforts to draw awareness and support for the Congolese people with the launch of the “Eastern Congo Initiative”.

“The situation in eastern Congo has been neglected for far too long – it is one of the worst humanitarian tragedies in the world,” Affleck said in a statement. “I brought together this unique collection of partners in order to bring their experience in humanitarian relief and sustainable development to bear as we focus like never before on local solutions to challenges in this region. Right now, the attention paid to this crisis doesn’t match the needs of those affected by it. We will raise that attention level, and work with the extraordinary Congolese people who are making a positive difference in their own communities.”

Partnering with Affleck on the initiative are Howard G. Buffett, Humanity United, the Bridgeway Foundation, and Jewish World Watch among others. The mission is to help the Congolese people support local solutions that create a sustainable and successful society in their local communities. It is the first of its kind in the United States focused exclusive on the people of the Eastern Congo.
