Will You Join Her Cause?

Mia Farrow

This is Mia Farrow, an American singer and actress, and she is on her 2nd week of HUNGER STRIKE to raise awareness of the crisis in Darfur. She had her first interview on Larry King Live yesterday and spoke about the current situation in Darfur, Sudan.

According to Mia,

"The situation has never been more dire, with the expulsion of the 16 key aid agencies that were sustaining so many lives. The time is urgent and running out for more than a million people in Darfur."

Darfur is a region in Sudan and is divided into three states: West Darfur, North Darfur and South Darfur. Because of its geographical location, it has faced many years of tension over land and grazing rights. It has experienced long droughts, desertification and overpopulation. Poverty is prevalent and it is because of a combination these situations that Darfur is now in crisis. It has been since 2003.

Many humanitarian aids, 16 of them to be exact, that support the people there and working to provide their most basic needs, have been expelled from Darfur. And with their expulsion come the loss of many lives, especially children, due to meningitis, cholera and other diseases.

If you want to know how to help, you can fast with Mia or visit Darfur Fast for Life for more details.
