“American Pie” actress Mena Suvari has joined Ewan McGregor and other stars in the fight against hunger in Africa. Recently, “Sex and the City” star Kristin Davis was in the Daadab refugee camp in Kenya where she learned about the hunger issues facing the country due to war and drought. She urged her fans to make a donation to help the country overcome what the U.N. is calling the “worst food crisis of the 21st century.”
Mena Suvari was moved by the cause and has taken to twitter in order to encourage her fans to make donations. Her tweet reads, “HELP HUMANITY Half a million children are going to die of malnutrition if we don’t act. http://t.co/ROKYoQz Please RT help.”
Ewan McGregor, actor and ambassador for UNICEF, has put out an appeal to the world through a video announcement where he states, “East Africa is in crisis. War, failing harvests, and the worst drought in fifty years means over two million children are at risk. Risk of disease and risk of death.”
As more and more refugees try to find refuge it becomes harder for organizations like UNICEF to feed those in need. Donations from people like you are of the utmost importance because the money goes to food, clean water medical expenses, and safe sanitation.
Along with Suvari, Davis and McGregor supporting and fighting for the hungry in Africa are celebrities Annie Lennox, Peter Gabriel and Livia Firth who have signed an open letter addressing the need for emergency aid in Africa.
To donate £5 to UNICEF text “Drought” to 70007.
