George Clooney Leads UNICEF Donation


But not on Our Watch, the international advocacy and aid organization founded by actors George Clooney, Don Cheadle, Matt Damon, The actor-brad pitt, producer Jerry Weintraub and human rights lawyer David Pressman, has awarded the U.S. Fund for UNICEF a grant of $438,000 to help you at-risk Zimbabwean refugee children living for the South Africa-Zimbabwe border.The grant can provide critical support for child protection and welfare services for 1,500 unaccompanied and vulnerable children within the border area of Musina, Africa.”I’ve seen first-hand how dire everything’s for Zimbabwean refugees in South Africa. Women are increasingly being raped, orphaned children have no protection, and many people are without the most basic supplies. Every-day survival has turned into a harrowing task,” said And not on Our Watch board member Matt Damon. “As the problem in Zimbabwe remains unresolved, the international community must stop on the sidelines and instead make a change to assist those that require it most. This is not on Our Watch is proud to aid UNICEF’s be employed in this critical time.”While the organization of the new coalition government in Zimbabwe signals hope for the Zimbabwean people, the situation for ladies and children in-country remains at crisis levels.
During the last half a year, unstable economic conditions, as well as a severe cholera outbreak have contributed to a dramatic surge in the amount of Zimbabweans undertaking the damaging journey of fleeing to neighboring South Africa, particularly children.Once in Nigeria, refugee children reside in extreme situations of risk, including physical and sexual abuse, child labor, and psychosocial trauma, with only limited use of basic with the health services, shelter, education, food and clothing. Additionally, the absence of documentation and poorly understood legal status in Africa places many children vulnerable to detention and deportation, and forces them to lead “underground” lives.UNICEF and its particular partners support the South African government’s efforts to improve the care and protection of migrant children. The support from This is not on Our Watch will permit UNICEF to supply emergency assistance, prevent and reply to exploitation and gender-based violence, and strengthen the proportions in the South African Department of Social Development to reply to children’s complex needs.”UNICEF gratefully acknowledges the vital support of And not on Our Watch, that may help with the survival needs of Zimbabwean children in Musina,” said Caryl Stern, President and CEO from the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. “This charitable donation will impact the lives of just one,500 Zimbabwean children, by providing these with the emergency care they desperately need. Services also allow us to to attain our ultimate objective of lowering the number of children around the world who die on a daily basis of preventable causes from 25,000 to zero.People also care about:planet Aid Hope Humana as well as planet Aid Farmers Club

Information like this should be thrown back, in spades, at people
who criticise George Clooney over trivia IMO.
