In order to prepare for his address before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday, George Clooney visited South Sudan last week, not only witnessing, but narrowly escaping the escalating violence in the region.

During his visit, Clooney met with residents, many of whom have fled civilian attacks by hiding in the Nuba Mountains, as well as South Sudan’s president and minister of defense. Clooney is expected to discuss conflicts over oil and natural resources between Sudan and the newly-independent South Sudan.

The Academy Award-winning actor has long worked to bring attention to the war-torn region, even going so far as to help create and launch the Satellite Sentinel Project following a 2011 visit. The Satellite Sentinel Project works to create and maintain an international focus on human rights and security in the region, as well as document and deter attacks on both Sudanese and South Sudanese civilians.
